At long last construction has started at *Central Square. The first of potentialy 13 developments is No.1 Central Square. This area has been crying out for development for decades, the decision by the BBC to relocate to the area was possibly the catalyst for the develoments that will totally transform the area, including a new relocated bus station (behind the soon to be demolished Marland House) See bottom left hand side of map for location and Central Square masterplan

Now back in 2005 when I was still a young man (OK a younger man!) I thought the days of Welsh rugby glory were just a distant joyful memory to ease the pain following countless dissapointments. The days of triple crowns - championship title and grand slams (as if) were very much behind us! Well what a miserable pessimistic s*d I must've been back in my youth (hardly!) coz then 2005 GRAND SLAM happened, didn't see that one coming! - why not spend a very enjoyable half hour and re-live it here.

Work started on the latest building in JR Smarts Capital Quarter development in spring 2014. It is 84,000sq.ft.
high specification and floor plates from 4,715sq.ft. up to 13,025sq.ft. and BREEAM rated Excellent and due for completion christmas 2015. website>>

WALES 16 v 21 ENGLAND - 6th FEB The build up to this match was massive! and at last the day arrived... a gloriously sunny day, Wales were confident, the fans full of optimism and a depleted England team decidedly nervy. The build up in the stadium as kick off approached cranked up the atmosphere even more, and by the time Mae Hen Wlad Fy Hhadau was sung it reached fever pitch! Little surprise that Wales were 10 - 0 up after just 8 minutes and looking like 2013 all over again! BUT that's when the Welsh 2015 Grand Slam dreams peaked. When England actually started to play they looked superior almost immediately and in the end Wales can have no complaints to have been defeated by the better side (on the night) match report

After 2 and a half season in a totally alien (to CCFC) colour, the Bluebirds have returned to their traditional Blue home kit!! In the future we'll look back at that strange time when we played in red - just hope that madness never returns. Mind you the atmosphere hasn't improved? although our current form may have something to do with that!! but at least they are being bood off in BLUE!! more >>

Cardiff, Newport and Bristol plan to work together as a city region under the title of Great Western Cities have been unveiled.
It is hoped the move will boost the economy in the region and help to develop renewable energy. more >>
well. it's a Brtitish pre-occupation - the weather! Unlike the rest of the UK it rarely rains in Cardiff! however if you find that claim a little far fetched then you can always check here oh yea of little faith!

If you have visited Bute Park and then fancy
seeing Cardiff Bay - then there is no better way
to get there than by boat! and there's a boat every
half an hour 10:30am til 5:00pm - from the
waterbus-stop 30 yards from the Castle St entrance
to the Park

What used to be called CIA or Cardiff International Arena is now the Motorpoint arena and is shown on the map

The following streets/roads are highlighted on the map: Boulevard de Nantes, Bute Terrace, Caroline street, Cathedral Road, Newport Road,Churchill Way, Greyfriars Road, Queen Street, St Mary Street, Westgate Street, Wood Street

The Vulcan Pub has been dis-assembled and put into storage, so that one day (not sure when) it will be reconstructed brick by brick at the museum of welsh life in st fagans. Anyway on the map above you can see where it was located from 1853 - 2012.
I wonder if it will last that long in St Fagans!!

On the Map all the Cardiff City centre hotels are shown and you can check availibility and book a room all from this one screen.
