If you’ve been to this region before, you’ll find it has changed enormously in the last few years. We always were good for shopping but the £675 million St David’s development has made Cardiff the number three for footfall and one of the top five shopping destinations in the UK. We have always been the 15-minute city, with everything within a stone’s throw of the city centre. The Vale of Glamorgan is the most southerly point in Wales, and stands in contrast to its neighbour, Cardiff. If you’re in the capital, make sure you take time to strike out a bit further and enjoy our stunning coast and countryside.
