Peter Finch's hugely popular alternative guide to the capital of Wales.

"One of the best books I have ever read about a city."
Jan Morris

Peter Finch discovers the real Cardiff - lost rivers, itinerant poets, the old race courses, the revitalised city centre, the redeveloped Cardiff Bay - as he travels the city from east to west and north to south. This is offbeat topographical writing, guaranteed to enthrall the native, the visitor and the armchair traveller alike.

"Real Cardiff and Real Cardiff Two - Utterly compelling ambles around the Welsh capital, full of oddball nuggets and with a terrific sense of context and place."
The Rough Guide To Wales

"A wealth of information on the significance of familiar sites for those who live in Cardiff and an interesting insight into Wales' capital for those who don't, Real Cardiff is far more indicative of life in the city than the average tourist guide."
The Big Issue
