I've only been in Cardiff once, they took us out for dinner there when we were working for about a week at a plant in Newport (November 2008)

Here's what I got:

That's funny Alan, that carousel was going to be in my next post.

@pegelli You were also in Cardiff Bay and your first image is of the Pierhead Building as seen in my post. I think it is a wonderful example of Victorian architecture dating from 1897 and now a Grade I listed building.

Gouldina, your shots off Cardiff Castle reminds me of how well restored it is and how long it's been since I last went; well worth a revisit I know.
