I want to thank again the wonderful staff at the centre for their consideration and help when I contact them in my forward planning trip to Cardiff. Nothing is too much trouble and even when there are busy always go that extra mile to ensure my request is carried out. I do hope that they DO NOT CLOSE this centre... More

This centre needs extra special recognition for the friendly staff, dedication to duty, friendliness and above all the desire to help the public. Special thanks must go to GARETH CLARKE, SILKE JANNSENS, DELPHINE BRYANT, NATASHA MOORE AND ITZEL LOPEZ.

As with all Tourist Information centres, it has a hive of information on the surrounding area. Its location is in the centre of the City and shares part of the building (previously the old library) with the Cardiff Story. This being the history of Cardiff.
