Cardiff Bay is the area created by the Cardiff Barrage in South Cardiff, the capital of Wales. The regeneration of Cardiff Bay is now widely regarded as one of the most successful regeneration projects in the United Kingdom with proposed schemes such as an 800-home waterfront community set to begin in early 2016. The Bay is supplied by two rivers (Taff and Ely) to form a freshwater lake round the former dockland area south of the city centre. Tiger Bay, now known as Cardiff Bay - Cardiff's dockland district - is Wales' oldest multi-ethnic community. Sailors and workers from over 50 countries settled here.

A number of boat tours operate from Mermaid Quay, which allow you to gain an understanding of the history and fauna of this exciting and upcoming area. Cardiff Bay is home to a number of attractions such as Techniquest Science Discovery Centre, Craft in the Bay, The Welsh Assembly at the Pierhead, Butetown History and Arts Centre, Goleulong 2000 Lightship, the Norwegian Church Arts Centre, Cardiff International White Water Rafting Centre with indoor surfing facilities and Olympic sized swimming pool, and the Wales Millennium Centre, a stunning international arts centre. The Atlantic Wharf Leisure Village provides further options for family entertainment to include a cinema, bowling, casino and a variety of popular restaurants.
