Cardiff is the capital of Wales, and its largest city. The eleventh-largest city in the United Kingdom, it is Wales’s chief commercial centre, the base for most national cultural institutions and Welsh media, and the seat of the National Assembly for Wales. The wider urban area is home to half a million people. Since the 1980s, Cardiff has seen significant development. A new waterfront area at Cardiff Bay contains the Senedd building, home to the Welsh Assembly and the Wales Millennium Centre arts complex. Cardiff wheelchair access is a pleasure for tourists with a disability. The city centre is quite compact and everything is easily accessible by foot or on wheels.
Cardiff is nice and flat, and the Council has planned for Cardiff disability access, with accessible pavements, kerbs and road crossings.
