The Basics

In the center of Cardiff, next to Bute Park, Cardiff Castle and the National Museum, Cardiff City Hall was opened in 1906. Made of Portland stone and surrounded by green lawns, fountains, and flowerbeds and topped with a statue of a Welsh Dragon, it’s a fittingly grand building for the capital of Wales. It’s a popular stop for visitors touring the city as part of a sightseeing bus tour.

Inside, you’ll find an impressive collection of artworks, including the celebrated painting Winter by Joseph Farquharson. The ornate Edwardian style interior complements the paintings, with marble columns and gilded chandeliers.
