A survivor from the days when Cardiff was the world's biggest coal exporter, the terracota Pierhead Building will now be used for state occasions and by the Welsh Assembly.
In 1910, the docks exported 13 million tons of coal and the area - then known as the infamous Tiger Bay - had a reputation for being a tough place to live and work.
By the 1980s, the Bute Docks area was derelict and run down, but major investment has transformed and regenerated the area, attracting a growing tourism trade.
