Cardiff, Capital of Wales has all the attractions, cultural and leisure facilities of a modern capital city. Cardiff is home to the Millenium Stadium and several major arts venues and new development at Cardiff Bay has produced a range of waterside leisure attractions.
Cardiff Castle, in the heart of the city is one of Wales's leading tourist attractions. The castle was built after the Norman Conquest and the buildings were modified many times until ownership passed by marriage to the Bute family. The 2nd Marquess of Bute was responsible for turning Cardiff into the world's greatest coal exporting port and his son John, who by the 1860's was reputed to be the richest man in the world, created lavish and opulent interiors on view today.
