Pierhead Building

This tiled, red brick and ceramic building (1896) was a symbol of the prosperity of the property, first used as the headquarters of the Cardiff Railway Company and then the offices for the docks. Today it is home to an interactive exhibition on the history of the docks and life in Cardiff Bay.
