The Cardiff Centenary Walk is a tourist walkway through Cardiff city centre in Wales. Established as part of Cardiff's centennial celebrations to mark 100 years of city status in 2005, it has 41 points of interest, either Cardiff landmarks or significant historic sites. The route is marked by waymarkers on the pavement, which also direct pedestrians to the next waymarker. The whole walk is 3.6 kilometres (2.2 mi) long running around Cardiff in a clockwise direction,[1] starting and finishing at the Cardiff Visitor Centre at the Old Library.

The waymarker 33 (Town Wall), is currently not accessible due to the development of St. David's Centre, called St. David's 2. From waymarker 32 (St David's Cathedral), you will need to use the path that skirts Debenhams, and runs between the old St David's Centre building and the new extension. This brings you out onto The Hayes near the John Batchelor statue and St David's Hall. (As the development moves towards completion, this route may change slightly). All other areas of the walk are still accessible by pedestrians.
