Cardiff is the capital city and main commercial centre of Wales, and the eleventh-largest city in the UK. As the base for the Senedd (Welsh Parliament), the population is around 350,000.

Since the 1980s, Cardiff has seen significant development, with a new waterfront area at Cardiff Bay containing the Senedd building and the Wales Millennium Centre arts complex. Ongoing developments include city centre areas with projects such as the Cardiff International Sports Village, the BBC drama village and a new business district. Since 2000, the city's scale and building height have been changed by many tall buildings which have been built in the city centre and Cardiff Bay.

The inner-city areas to the south of the A4161 road (known as the "Southern Arc") are (with the exception of Cardiff Bay), some of the poorest districts of Wales, while Gabalfa, Plasnewydd and Cathays north of the 'arc' have very large student populations, and Pontcanna (situated north of Riverside and alongside Canton) is a favourite for students and young professionals.

Penylan, which lies to the north east side of Roath Park, is an affluent area popular with those with older children and the retired. Lisvane, Cyncoed, Radyr and Rhiwbina contain some of the most expensive housing in Wales.
