You need to update your website then, eg 
http://www.bayhosting.co.uk/hosting/facilities.php, as it claims that 
Cardiff is one of your main sites and offers rackspace and other 
solutions in a Cardiff data centre.

Also found CSS Leeds, http://www.ccsleeds.co.uk/cardiff.html, which 
/appears/ to offer Cardiff DC rackspace.
