Cardiff makes a charming first impression with its ever-bustling, restaurant-lined waterfront and elegant, Edwardian Baroque-style City Hall. Imposing medieval churches serve as a striking counterpoint to modern architectural marvels like the copper-domed Wales Millennium Centre, while the city's restored Victorian arcades are today filled with hip boutiques selling quirky local fashion and artisan homewares.
