Cardiff County Hall – one of the first buildings in the area – is a major part of the regeneration and redevelopment of Cardiff Bay.
Built over 1986 and 1987, County Hall was constructed in an area close to Cardiff docks, known to many as Tiger Bay. The docks played a major part in Cardiff’s development, exporting coal from the South Wales Valleys to the rest of the world and helping to power the Industrial Age. By the early 1980’s Tiger Bay had become a neglected wasteland however today, the area is known as Cardiff Bay and has been transformed.Now Cardiff Bay is widely regarded as one of the most successful regeneration projects in the UK. A number of boat tours operate from Mermaid Quay and there is also a water taxi service which operates throughout the year from the Bay to the city centre and Penarth.
County Hall is a modern and impressive venue which stands proud amongst notable buildings in the area such as the Norwegian Church, Wales Millennium Centre, the Senedd and The Pierhead Building.
When you visit Cardiff Bay, be sure to take a walk around the water’s edge at County Hall and experience the wildlife, nature and history of the area.
