Background information

The BGS Cardiff office was opened in April 2004 by the Welsh Assembly's First Minister Carwyn Jones when he was Minister for Environment, Planning and Countryside. The Cardiff office provides Wales with access to the full range of BGS services and the expertise of 800 staff located at our other sites.

The Minister welcomed the BGS's commitment to the development of Wales and encouraged the public, government, other public bodies and industry to make full use of our data and expert services that lie within, and behind, the office.

Contact Jane Silivestros, for copies of maps, data or records; or to book customer meeting rooms at our office.

Sales and enquiries

There is a selection of maps and other BGS publications relating to Wales available to purchase from the office. Visitors can also place orders for copies of out-of-print or unpublished BGS material including maps or visit the BGS Bookshop.
