Looking for something fun and interesting to do while visiting Cardiff? Cardiff Bay has it all to offer!
The Cardiff Bay official website has a host of information relating to the history of the Bay and the many attractions that it holds. Take a browse around this site to find the best things for you to do and learn about! In the meantime, below are some interesting facts about the Bay.
Tiger Bay, now known as Cardiff Bay - Cardiff's dockland district - is Wales' oldest multi-ethnic community. Sailors and workers from over 50 countries settled here.
Tiger Bay was also notorious. A slice of red-light district and gambling dens between Cardiff's city centre and its docks, and home to a rich mix of multi-racial communities, it had a powerful character of its own. Its most famous former residents are former rugby star Billy Boston and singer Shirley Bassey, who were both born in Tiger Bay.
The 1960s saw the wholesale destruction of large areas of the Bay and displacement of the community.
The 1970s and 80s saw a new influx of refugees from conflicts around the world, and the 90s saw the birth of the renewal of the area as a leisure and business hot-spot and the founding of the National Assembly for Wales.
Today, the Cardiff docklands area is known as Cardiff Bay and it has been transformed by the Cardiff Barrage that impounds the Rivers Taff and the Ely to create a massive fresh-water lake.
A number of boat tours operate from Mermaid Quay, which allow you to gain an understanding of the history and fauna of this exciting and upcoming area.
There is also a water taxi service which operates throughout the year from the Bay to the city centre and Penarth.
Cardiff Bay is home to a number of attractions such as Techniquest Science Discovery Centre - ideal for all the family, Craft in the Bay, The Welsh Assembly at the Pierhead, Butetown History and Arts Centre, Goleulong 2000 Lightship, the Norwegian Church Arts Centre and the Wales Millennium Centre, a stunning international arts centre.
The Atlantic Wharf Leisure Village provides further options for family entertainment.
The harbour at Cardiff Bay experiences one of the world's greatest tidal ranges up to 14m. This has meant that at low tide, it has been inaccessible for up to 14 hours a day. The new barrage will eliminate the effect of the tide, which has acted as an inhibitor to development, releasing the potential of the capital city's greatest asset - its waterfront.
The construction of the barrage is one of the largest engineering projects in Europe. Completed in 1999, it has created a 500 acre freshwater lake with 8 miles of waterfront and it is hoped it will stimulate the future development of the Bay as a tourist and leisure destination.
Cardiff has been named as one of the top 10 cities in Europe. Over 319,700 friendly people live here and call it home. We have 149 pubs, bars and nightclubs (18 of them on the waterfront), 73 restaurants and 125 hotels.
The official Cardiff Bay website has been Serving you, the visitor since 1996 with up to date information and a friendly, professional service.
We are sure you will thoroughly enjoy your visit to Cardiff Bay!
