WHAT A DIFFERENCE A BAY MAKES!

One hundred years ago Cardiff’s fortunes were built on exports of Welsh coal, when the Bute family docks were a bustling hub shipping millions of tonnes across the globe.

With the decline of the coal industry the old docklands fell in to disuse and were left to decay but, in recent times, they have been redeveloped to create Cardiff Bay, a vibrant waterfront around the shore of a stunning freshwater lake.

Now the area is alive and bustling with activity once more, the ships and machinery replaced with restaurants and bars, the hard work with entertainment and enjoyment. There are many attractions that make a visit to Cardiff Bay worthwhile, we’ve listed some of the best ones below for you.
