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 Gloucester is located in the county of Gloucestershire and lies close to the border with Wales. The city, which also lies on the River Severn, has a rich past dating back to Roman times. At the heart of the city, and standing in College Green, is the Norman cathedral with its breathtaking fan-vaulted cloisters and great east window. From the cathedral it is only a short walk down narrow cobbled streets, past historical buildings, to the main shopping area in the city. From there it is, once again, a short walk to the Victorian Docks with its now converted warehouses. In the docks you are likely to see all manner of vessels from narrow boats to sea going ships. The city is also an excellent base from which to explore the surrounding area and take in the splendour of the Cotswolds and the Forest of Dean. The Cotswolds is an area of rolling hills which rise from the meadows of the upper Thames to an escarpment, known as the Cotswold Edge, above the Severn Valley and Evesham Vale. The Forest of Dean is an area of mixed ancient woodland and forms a roughly triangular plateau bounded by the River Wye to the west and north, the River Severn to the south, and the City of Gloucester to the east.
