Cardiff City Hall stands out because of its magnificent architecture. Next to the huge garden of Cathays Park, it is designed in a Renaissance style reminiscent of both English and French traditions. Made from marble, it has a beautiful tower.
Once the main auditorium for concerts in the Welsh capital since being built in 1877, this neo-classical building in the center of Cardiff is no longer used for its original purpose, and today is only licensed as a bar. The lobby has lost a lot of its original charm, but the facade is still beautiful.
The heart of the city of Cardiff is not very big, but is definitely different in its appearance. Within a few hundred meters you'll find typical British-style houses, ancient red brick buildings, and ultra-modern and futuristic blocks. A large part of the center is pedestrianized, and it is busy day and night, with people walking, shopping and clubbing. There are also street vendors and street artists ve sell their work or offer small performances.
