Destination fact sheet

Cardiff (City)

Cardiff is the economic motor of Wales and regroups most of its primary political administrations and institutions, as well as many centralized services in the education and health sectors.

From a tourism perspective, the destination presents the advantage of being a must-see in Wales, and it enjoys strong cultural and artistic dynamism with a busy music & sports events calendar, notably the Rugby World Cup in 2015 and other events held in the Millennium Stadium –such as the finals of the 2016-2017 UEFA Champions League.

After its population diminished in the 1980s following the deindustrialization crisis, Cardiff has been experiencing a demographic boom: the number of inhabitants in the city increased by 18% between 2001 and 2011, to more than one million inhabitants.

After the slump in port and industrial activities, the city reconverted its economy towards the fields of energy, communications and finance: offices of Centrica, HBOS, ING Direct, Swalec or the Zurich Insurance Group may be found in Cardiff.

As of January 1, 2018, the hotel chain supply represented 4,301 rooms.
