This week Speedy has been travelling to Cardiff, the capital and largest city in Wales. Cardiff is a popular tourist destination and is home to the largest railway station in Wales, Cardiff Central railway station, which over 10 million passengers pass through a year. The M4 connects Cardiff with Swansea to the west, and Newport and London to the east, allowing for regular access for our Speedy Courier drivers to make their deliveries across Wales.
Situated in the heart of the city centre is Cardiff Castle, which is a major tourist attraction. Cardiff claims to have the most castles of any city in the world. The Millennium Stadium, the national stadium for the Wales national rugby union team and the Wales national football team is based in Cardiff and was initially built to host the 1999 Rugby World Cup.
Cardiff was granted city status in 1905 by King Edward VII, and was proclaimed the capital of Wales on 20 December 1955.
The Riverside Farmers Market runs every Sunday from 10am-2pm on the Fitzhamon Embankment opposite the Millennium Stadium. The RCMA Farmer’s market offers fresh meat, veg and fruit directly supporting local producers and farmers.
Cardiff has twinning arrangements with several locations, including Luhansk, Ukraine, Hordaland county, Norway, and Stuttgart, Germany.
