The capital city of Wales since 1955,
Cardiff stands at the mouth
of the River Taff, and is the home of the Welsh Assembly.
Noted for its Victorian arcades and
pedestrianised shopping area,
there is also the castle and renowned Civic Centre.
Cardiff castle is a few minutes walk
away. The castle is built on
Roman and Norman foundations, but what you see is mostly a
Victorian reconstruction. Designed by celebrated Victorian
architect William Burges, the austerity of the curtain wall which
surrounds the edifice belies the richness of the murals, carvings
and sculpture which decorate the various rooms within.
There are guided tours around the castle
which also houses the
Museums of the Welch Regiment and The First Queen's Dragoon Guards.
>From the allure which runs inside the
top of the castle wall, the
view to the south is dominated by the pinnacled Somerset Tower of
St John's Church, which dates back to the thirteenth century.
Queen Street is the main shopping
thoroughfare and is
pedestrianised throughout its length. At the eastern end is the
Capital Centre shopping mall.
Park Place gives access to the New
Theatre, Cathays Park, the
Civic centre and Alexandra Gardens with its memorials to both
World Wars and to more recent conflicts.
The civic centre is regarded as the
finest in Europe, and
incorporates the City Hall, museum, law courts and university
buildings. The former Welsh Office now serves the Welsh Assembly.
In Cardiff Bay, the splendid waterfront
development has been
developed around the 500-acre freshwater lake created by the
barrage which dams the mouth of the Rivers Taff and Ely.
The Tube is the popular name given to
Visitor Centre near the
Norwegian Church in which children's author Roald Dahl was baptised.
Nearby is the Christian Fellowship Centre
created in the Helwick
Across the bay, is Techniquest, a
hands-on science centre where
scientific principles are demonstrated in novel and surprising
Mermaid Quay has designer clothing
outlets and international
restaurants, close to which is the landing stage from where water
taxis and pleasure boats give trips out to the barrage, around the
bay and upriver as far as the RiverBank.
The RiverBank is centrally placed for
touring the surrounding
area, which has a number of first-class attractions.
Four miles away to the west is the Museum
of Welsh Life, where
buildings from all over Wales have been dismantle stone by stone
and re-erected in the ground of an Elizabethan mansion. Beyond,
the rolling meadows of the Vale of Glamorgan stretches away as far
Nestling in the Vale are market towns and
while on the coastal fringe are the seaside resorts of Penarth,
Barry Island and Porthcawl.
Penarth is famed for its pier, from where
steam pleasure boats
ply their way across the Bristol Channel. At Barry Island is a
steam railway heritage centre, while Porthcawl boasts a traditional
funfair and one of Wales' largest caravan parks. Further afield is
the city of Swansea and the Gower Coast - the first place in Britain
to be designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Castell Coch (the Red Castle) was the
country retreat of the
Third Marquis of Bute, decorated with the same opulence as the
Cardiff Castle. It is about six miles away, occupying a commanding
position overlooking the Taff gorge. Further north is Pontypridd,
with its memorial to the composers of the Welsh National Anthem;
the Rhondda Heritage Park in a former colliery where former
colliers are your guides; Llancaiach Fawr, a manor house dating
from the English Civil War where visitors are greeted and
entertained in the style of that age; the historic town of Merthyr
Tydfil, in the foothills of the Brecon Beacons, which offers
spectacular views and exhilarating walks.
To the east of Cardiff, Newport has the
bridge, one of only three remaining in the world; Tintern Abbey
in the lush Wye Valley, The Dearn Forest, home to a steam railway
operating in truly sylvan surroundings; there are castles at
Chepstow, Caldicot and Raglan, and the historic town of Monmouth.
In the vvalleys to the north of Newport,
there are the towns of
Pontypool, Abergavenny and Blaenavon, the latter designated a
world heritage centre, with the ironworks, the Pontypool and
Blaenavon Railway and Big Pit, a former colliery where visitors
can descent 300 feet to one of the coal faces, where former miners
are your guides for a unique experience.
Walking Tours from the RiverBank
The Taff Trail runs from Cardiff to
Brecon, and literally passes
alongside the RiverBank Hotel. Its total length is 57 miles, but it
can be conveniently broken down into shorter sections.
There are a number of ridgeway walks,
including the Glamorgan
Ridgeway Path of 28 miles which looks down on the Welsh Valleys
on its way to Port Talbot, but the most exhilarating walking
country must be through the Brecon Beacons National Park.
The beacon range is dotted with lakes and
reservoirs, and one
walk takes in Pen-y-fan - the highest point in South Wales -
Corn-ddu and Cribyn.
Further west is the Pembrokeshire Coastal
Path, 186 miles of
spectacular seascapes, walking along some of the most dramatic
cliff top paths in the country.
Whether your stay is to be long or short,
if walking is your
pleasure we have the expertise to make the most of your time.

Of all the parts of Britain, Wales has
maintained its historical
independence and ancient Celtic mother tongue, which is communicated
through the nationalism of its people and in the elements of earth,
water and air in its landscape. Cardiff, the youthful capital of
Wales, is vibrant yet offers a setting for calm retreat away from
the hustle and bustle of a hectic lifestyle.
The St David's Hotel & Spa is located
on the waterfront in Cardiff
and has been described by Condé Nast as one of the 'Top 20 Coolest
Hotels of the World'. Cardiff Bay, once a coal port, is now the prestigious
centre of culture and commerce and is home to the
Welsh National Assembly and an array of new developments including
Mermaid Quay and the Wales Millennium Centre.
Whilst you are staying with us, I hope
you will have time to
explore, taking in the history and sounds of this magical city,
including the National Museum and Gallery - Cardiff's hidden
treasure. The gallery has one of the largest collections of
Impressionist work outside of Paris, largely thanks to Welsh
sisters Gwendoline and Margaret Davies, who were avid collectors
of Turner, Cézanne, Monet and Degas. The museum offers entertainment
for all the family, providing a journey of discovery - from Wales's
oldest rock to big, fluffy mammoths and dinosaurs.
Visit the city's Royal Arcade, Britain's
only three-storey arcade,
or the oldest record shop in the world, Spillers.

Stephen Carter's delicious
menus in Tides Bar and Grill; however, I have put together a list
