Cardiff-Cardiff is the capital and largest city in Wales and the tenth largest city in the United Kingdom. The city is Wales's chief
commercial center the base for most national cultural and sporting
Cardiff is also the largest media center in the UK outside of London, which also attracted me; I visited Cardiff for a Seminar in the
University of Wales. Cardiff is home to
four major institutions of higher education: Cardiff University, University
of Glamorgan, Cardiff Metropolitan University and the Royal Welsh College of
Music & Drama.
During my visit to Cardiff I
visited various landmarks such as the Millennium Stadium, Pierhead
Building which is the Welsh National Museum and the Senedd, the home of the
National Assembly for Wales.I also visited the famous Cardiff Castle and the Wales Millennium Center.
Newport is a city and unitary
authority in south east Wales. It is the third largest city in
Wales. It is located on the River
Usk close to its confluence with
the Severn estuary. It is 12
miles (19 km) east of Cardiff;
I traveled from Cardiff to Newport by a bus. After my visit to the University
of Wales, I traveled around Newport, I came to know that Newport has been a
port since medieval times, when a castle was built by the Normans.
The Universities old building
was in a place called Caerleon which is a
suburban village, also situated on the River
Usk, and is in the northern outskirts of the city of Newport. I visited various sites of archaeological importance, including notable Roman legionary fortress, Isca
Augusta, and an Iron
fort. The Wales National
Roman Legion Museum and Roman
Baths Museum are also in Caerleon close to the remains of Isca Augusta.
