Penylan is a district of Cardiff, the capital city of Wales, known for its period houses and spacious tree lined roads. Situated to both the north and south of the A48 Dual Carriageway, it is one of the most affluent districts of Cardiff, although subdivision of the large Victorian properties is starting to occur in the areas at the south end of the ward, mimicking the trend in neighbouring Plasnewydd.

Penylan has a number of large parks, and is one of the greenest areas in Cardiff. It is also known for its very strong sense of community, largely due to the parks, road layouts, churches, and local post offices and newsagents. Despite the closing of the local synagogue (which moved to nearby Cyncoed), Penylan retains the largest Jewish population of Cardiff, which although well down on its heydey, numbers about 350 (just over 3% of the population) out of approximately 1000 in the entire city.
