Tiger Bay

Tiger Bay is the former dock area of Cardiff. It is now revitalised as Cardiff Bay due to the building of the multi-million pound Cardiff Barrage which dams the tidal rivers Ely and Taff to create a body of water.

Tiger Bay was notorious for being a tough area. It also had a well-integrated multi-racial community, its most famous former resident being Shirley Bassey.

The British film, Tiger Bay (1959), starred John Mills and Hayley Mills.
