Welcome to Cardiff, Capital for shopping!
Croeso i Gaerdydd, Prifddinas Siopa!
Cardiff is a capital for shopping, and with a combination of designer brands, high street names as well as more individual and independent shops, there's something for everyone.
Recently named the 6th best shopping destination in the UK, Cardiff has the whole spectrum of shopping, with charming Edwardian and Victorian arcades and ultra-modern shopping centres. And when you've had your fill of retail therapy, there are plenty of cafés, restaurants and bars to stop and relax in.
Minimum bag charge
In October 2011 the 5p minimum bag charge came into effect in Wales. The charge on single-use carrier bags aims to reduce the amount of plastic bags used in the country, with the money raised going to Welsh charities.
