Riverside (Welsh: Glanyrafon) is an inner-city area of Cardiff, Wales. The ward can be split into two parts; Riverside-proper, south of Cowbridge Road East, which consists of mostly small terraced houses and is a focus for the city's Bangladeshi and Chinese population, particularly around Tudor Street; and Pontcanna, the gentrified "media Village" which is interesting demographically due to both its large English born population and large Welsh speaking political and media class.

The Riverside electoral ward falls into the parliamentary constituency of Cardiff West. It is bounded by Gabalfa to the north; Cathays to the east; Grangetown to the south; and Canton and Llandaff to the west.

Local Organisations
Situated on the Riverside section of Cowbridge Road East, Cardiff & District Samaritans are one of the area's more visible voluntary organisations.
