Your boat trip will take you out onto Cardiff Bay, where it’s hard to imagine these waters were once thriving with commercial ships during the Industrial Revolution laden with coal from the South Wales pits destined for the four corners of the World. During this time, many immigrants decided to make a new life for themselves in and around Cardiff bay. The docklands soon developed into a thriving multicultural community and famously nicknamed ‘Tiger Bay’.
Bay cooperation was formed with the aim to regenerate and transform Cardiff Bay after the demise of this once busy coal port by the building of the tidal barrage, which created a 500-acre fresh water lake that is fed by both the River Taff and Ely. Now internationally known as one of the finest and most successful waterside regenerations in Europe.
The regeneration is still very much on going, with the 7 hundred million pound international sports village. Also situated in and around the bay is the new Welsh Assembly building and the World-renowned Millennium Centre, which sits alongside the Mermaid Quay development, with its cosmopolitan bars, restaurants and 5 star St.David's hotel, all nestled alongside the historic bay buildings such as the Norwegian Church and the old Pierhead building
