About Cardiff

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.

About London

London has too many buildings to be characterised by one architectural style. This is due, in part, to the varying ages of its buildings with dating back as far as the 11th century, such as The Tower of London. Many of London's large, opulent, houses and public buildings, such as the National Gallery, were constructed using Portland stone. However, different parts of the city have styles of their own. For example, the area to the west of central London is characterised by white stucco buildings. Although some do exist, few of London's surviving buildings pre-date the Great Fire of 1666. Those that do may have a trace of Roman remains or are of Tudor origins.

London is also a very green city with many parks and open spaces for inhabitants and visitors to enjoy. In central London there are a number of Royal Parks: Hyde Park and its neighbour Kensington Gardens, Regent's Park which is home to London Zoo, Green Park and St James's Park. Further out from the centre there is Greenwich Park, Bushey Park, Richmond Park and Victoria Park. Primrose Hill and Hampstead Heath to the north of Regent's Park are popular spots to view the ever changing London skyline.
