Sites in Cardiff

Nearly all of the county borough of Cardiff is occupied by the city itself, together with five miles of Bristol Channel coastline, not particularly scenic since most is bordered by industrial sites. Natural areas are towards the north, beyond the M4, including several city parks, nature reserves, hills and valleys.

The three most important ancient buldings in Cardiff are Llandaff Cathedral, the adjacent Bishop's Palace, and Cardiff Castle, which although greatly modified in Victorian times, does retain large sections from the medieval era. One more recent attraction is Castell Coch, another 19th-century Gothic Revival structure.
