Located in the north-east of the city, Cyncoed is one of the most affluent parts of Cardiff and Wales in general. The area was mainly built in the early twentieth century when Cardiff was expanding rapidly. Housing is a mixture of some very large detached homes and smaller semi-detached buildings. Modern housing estates now surround the area, and some of the original houses have been demolished and replaced by smaller homes.
Features include a small shopping village, a number of churches, a synagogue, and primary and secondary schools. It is home to one of the campuses of University of Wales Institute, Cardiff (UWIC) and a Cardiff University hall of residence.
Cyncoed Road runs through, and dictactes, the Cyncoed region, connecting the outer suburbs to the inner city.
Between Cyncoed and Llanishen lie two defunct reservoirs. The company which owns this site, Western Power Distribution, intends to build houses there but this plan is opposed by many residents of the two districts.
