These city street maps of Cardiff and surrounding areas are built for businesses, graphic designers and other professionals who need a detailed base map of Cardiff city that can be manipulated and used for commercial purposes. You can use the high-resolution PDFs supplied for the Cardiff street maps as they are, or edit the artwork with Adobe Illustrator software, for a wide range of marketing, commerce, research and display projects without restrictions on print run with our standard royalty free licence.

We include two map bases in the download package: one street map of Cardiff city centre scaled for A1 in its opening state; this covers central Cardiff out to Llandaff and Cardiff University in the northwest and Cardiff Docks in the southeast. The second map base is scaled for A0 in its opening state and covers a larger Cardiff environs area out to Cardiff Airport, Barry, the northern Cardiff suburbs and Talbot Green. Check the low resolution zoom previews on this page to see the full areas of coverage.

Please note, the zoom previews on this web page are limited by the maximum size possible for web preview, but the files included in the download package are fully zoomable and suitable for high-resolution output and printing. The Illustrator PDFs can be used as they are, or form a starting point for your own customised version. You can crop or zoom in to the map artwork at any scale you want, and the detail will be sharp at every level on the scalable vector artwork.
