1. Embrace modern democracy at the Senedd
What is it? The home of modern Welsh politics
Why go? Opened on St David’s Day in 2006, the Cardiff Bay-located Senedd building is where the politicians of Wales converge to debate the issues of the day. The building is an architectural curiosity, with an eye-catching wood ceiling providing shade for the many steps in front. The Senedd was built with sustainability in mind, proving once more that architecture can straddle the divide between environmentally friendly and aesthetically pleasing. Guided tours of the Senedd are available but must be booked ahead of time.
