Canton became part of Cardiff in 1875 and is today a vibrant mix of culture and multifaceted living as residents can enjoy the hustle and busy of the city, yet still succumb to the peace and quiet of a more country vibe lifestyle. Canton is an inner-city district in the West of Cardiff and is the most welsh speaking area in Cardiff.
Canton has working class roots, but also a very artistic and youthful feel to it, with a lot of young working professionals living here. For many years Canton was the largest trading market in the South Wales area and is still a hub of activity as many car dealerships and shops are constantly active here.
A few noteworthy people that have come from Canton are the singer Charlotte Church, legendary footballer Ryan Giggs as well as the half-mile world champion runner Frederick Charles Davies.
