Y Senedd

On the Cardiff bayfront we found the Welsh National Assembly building - Y Senedd - in Welsh.
I have seen it on the tv but was surprised how small the building was from the outside. I also thought that the timber needed revarnishing as the endless Welsh sunshine has faded bits of it.
We were the only tourists to go inside, but it was well worth the trip. The ceiling inside was dramatic and immaculate and the walls were glass with fantastic views of the bay.
We also went to see where the Parliament sits. The room is hidden underground beneath the mushroom part of the roof structure. Unfortunately, the politicians were not at work so we had the whole place to ourselves.
