The South Wales Echo is a daily tabloid newspaper published in Cardiff, Wales and distributed throughout the surrounding area.

The newspaper was founded in 1884 and was based in Thomson House, Cardiff city centre. It is published by Media Wales Ltd (formerly Western Mail & Echo Ltd), part of the Trinity Mirror group. In 2008 Media Wales moved into from Thompson House to 6 Park Street, next to the Millennium Stadium.

Two editions are published: News Extra for morning sales and City Final for evening sales. There is also a Weekend edition published every Saturday.

Amongst many others, novelist Ken Follett, science writer Brian J. Ford, cartoonist Gren Jones, journalist Sue Lawley[1] and news reader Michael Buerk, have spent part of their careers with the Echo.
