Cardiff is the capital city of Wales and is also the country's largest commercial centre and base for most of the national cultural and sorting institutions, the Welsh national media and the seat of the National Assembly for Wales. Edward VII granted Cardiff city status in 1905 and has seen significant development since the 1990's. A new waterfront area at Cardiff Bay contains the Senedd building, home to the Welsh Assembly and the Wales Millennium Centre arts complex.
The city's sporting venues include the Millennium Stadium, which is the national stadium for the Wales national rugby union team and the Wales national football team. Th city also has the SWALEC Stadium, home of Glamorgan County Cricket Club, Cardiff City Stadium, Cardiff International Sports Stadium and Cardiff Arms Park.
Industry and commerce has played an important role in Cardiff's development over the centuries. The catalyst was the demand for coal which was needed for making iron and steel which was brought to the sea by packhorse from Merthyr Tydfill.
The majority of Cardiff's shopping is in the city centre around Queen Street and St. Mary Street, with large suburban retail parks located in Cardiff Bay, Culverhouse Cross, Leckwith, Newport Road and Pontprennau.
Cardiff's main railway station is Cardiff Central and provides services across Wales and to the rest of the United Kingdom.
The city of Chester lies close to the border with Wales and is located in the north west of England in the county of Cheshire. There are many things to do in the city including visiting the Roman walls and wandering along The Groves or around the historic market town. The Groves is Chester's own promenade that runs alongside the River Dee from Grosvenor Park to the Old Handlebridge. The Groves was established as a promenade in the early 18th century.
For visitors interested in horse racing, Chester Racecourse is located on the Roodee which was originally the site of the Roman Port. If visitors want to see some of the racing action for free then the Roman walls walk you right past a view of the action.
Roman remains can still be seen in the city, particularly in the basements of some of the city's buildings and also in the lower parts of the northern section of the city walls. Perhaps the most important feature is the amphitheatre just outside the walls. Roman artifacts are on display in the Roman Gardens which run parallel to the city walls from Newgate to the River Dee.
