Inspired by vintage tourism posters from the golden age of travel, we’ve produced a series of posters celebrating Cardiff landmarks.

“The Norwegian Church Arts Centre is one of the landmark buildings situated in Cardiff Bay and has panoramic views over the waterfront.

“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.”
