Rumney (Welsh: Tredelerch) is a district of the city of Cardiff, Wales. It lies east of the River Rhymney, and was part of Monmouthshire. On April 1, 1938 the Cardiff Extension Act 1937 incorporated it into the county borough of Cardiff, and thus it became associated with the geographical county of Glamorgan.

This is a predominately residential area with a variety of social and private housing. There are many shopping outlets on Newport Road as well as local shops at the top of Rumney Hill and on Wentloog Road, Countisbury Avenue in Llanrumney also hosts a good variety of local shops. New Industial & Business Estates have been developed alongside existing ones on Lamby Way providing welcome employment opportunities for many residents in Cardiff.

Within the older sectors of the Rumney area, are places of interest, such as the historic Rumney Pottery which is still in use today and also the remains of the old Rumney Castle which was a major stronghold on the South Wales coast, the remains of which were excavated in the late 70's and early 80's. An old Quarry which is now being used as a children´┐Żs park is situated off Ty Mawr Road (Ty Mawr - Welsh for "Big House")
