Cardiff skyscrapers and roath

Here are some picture i took from the top floor of East Gate house and some pictures of an area of Cardiff Known as Roath, it is a residential area and also contains a large park and lake.

Here is a church, Royal infirmary and looking towards an area of Cardiff Known as Splot








Here is the new Cityloft development of apartments and the university building





Looking towards city center with the 4 star MsDonald Holland House Hotel, Brunel House, The aspect apartments, and BT building behind the Aspect. Building to far right in 2nd pic is Capital Tower















If you look in the distance you can see Castell Coch on the mountain



In the distance is Unvirsty Hospital Wales


Looking towards civic center



Looking towards Roath

And what is the building in the second picture above!? How tall is it? Looks pretty sweet!

Cardiff looks beautiful - I'll have to get down there some day!

Thanks for the photos!

Roath rules! So many wasted free lessons down the park there. I go to College just round the corner at St David's so it's only a 2-3 minute walk there anyday. lovely stuff!
