A great way to explore the city centre on foot, and find out more about the capital
Cardiff’s Centenary Walk is a great way to explore the city centre on foot, and find out more about how Cardiff became the city it is today.
The Centenary Walk takes in some of Cardiff’s most celebrated and historic landmarks, as well as some well-kept secrets. The whole walk is 3.6 km or 2.3 miles long, and indicated by numbered waymarkers in the pavement. You can join it anywhere along the route, taking in as much – or as little – as you fancy.
The numbered waymarkers start outside the Old Library. Click on Offers and Events to download an English version of the guide. Welsh, French and German versions can be downloaded from the website.
Whether you’ve lived in Cardiff all your life, or are a welcome visitor, you’re sure to find out something you never knew before. Enjoy your walk!
The Walk starts from the Old Library building in the city centre, but can be joined anywhere along the route. Many city centre car parks and park and ride services are therefore convenient.
The Old Library is in the city centre, close to Central and Queen Street train stations, and several bus stops. For more information on how to reach the city centre by public transport contact Traveline Cymru on 0871 2002233 or www.traveline-cymru.info.
