Inspired by vintage tourism posters from the golden age of travel, we’ve produced a series of posters celebrating Cardiff landmarks.
“Cardiff Castle is one of Wales’ leading heritage attractions and a site of international significance. Located within beautiful parklands at the heart of the capital, Cardiff Castle’s walls and fairytale towers conceal 2,000 years of history.”
Visit the Cardiff Castle website.
“While resting on ancient foundations, Castell Coch (Red Castle) is relatively modern, the by-product of a vivid Victorian imagination, assisted by untold wealth.”
Visit the Cadw website.
“The Cathedral Church of SS Peter & Paul, Dyfrig, Teilo and Euddogwy is the mother church of the Diocese of Llandaff and is the seat of the Bishop of Llandaff.”
Read about the cathedral on Wikipedia.
“Wales Millennium Centre is Wales’ national home for the performing arts in Cardiff Bay. One of the UK’s top cultural attractions and home to eight resident partners, this Welsh landmark stages musicals, opera, ballet, circus and contemporary dance alongside the UK’s largest programme of free performances.”
Visit the Wales Millennium Centre website.
“The Norwegian Church Arts Centre is one of the landmark buildings situated in Cardiff Bay and has panoramic views over the waterfront.
Formerly a Church for Norwegian Sailors, the iconic building dates back to the industrial revolution, when Cardiff Docks was the world’s greatest exporter of coal.”
Visit the Norwegian Church website.
“The opening of Roath Park on June 20th 1894 was, in the words of the Western Mail the previous day, “the consummation of seven years’ work”. This was Cardiff’s first publicly-owned park, built on land donated for the purpose by the Marquis of Bute and other landowners.”
