Cardiff: Why live anywhere else?

When it comes to modern cities, Cardiff is one of the hottest places in the UK to be living right now. You’ll find a world of entertainment, plenty of excitement and lots of adventure in this brilliant, bubbly city.

Just what is it that makes Cardiff so great? Well, for starts it is a very young city as it has four universities based here. That means that a lot of the entertainment and activities are targeted at the younger generations, although you’ll still find plenty about to cater for the older people as well! In addition to this, Cardiff is an incredibly versatile city offering pretty much everything you could ask for!

Adrenaline Junkies

You don’t often associate city life with high adrenaline activities – unless you get a special kick from shopping sprees – but Cardiff is a city that takes this perception and defies it. There are loads of extreme activities that you can enjoy in this capital city, making it the ideal location for thrill seekers to live. What’s more, it’s only 30 minutes away from the unspoilt Brecon Beacons where you can stand and feel as though you’re the only person in the world!

Super Shopping

If you are one of those people who do get a special kick from shopping, then you will absolutely love Cardiff! We’ve got shops as far as the eye can see, from your normal high street stores to giant department stores and plenty of niche places in the arcades to explore. Whether you’re looking for the latest artwork to decorate your home, clothes to rock nights out in or the latest gadgets and accessories, you’ll find it all in Cardiff’s plentiful shopping scene.

Awesome Nights Out

This is something that you simply can’t ignore when it comes to Cardiff – the nightlife! We have bars, pubs, nightclubs, cocktail bars and much, much more. You can’t move without finding somewhere to enjoy a great night out. You’ll find a great selection of chains for a reliable night out or you could test the waters and try some of Cardiff’s independent clubs, bars and pubs to be blown away by the incredible atmosphere.

Fantastic Food

If there’s one thing Cardiffians really, really know, its food. We love our food and we’re really good at making it… no honestly we are! You’ll find everything from street food to fine dining in Cardiff, with every sort of cuisine imaginable. It doesn’t matter where in the world you’re from, if you’re feeling home sick and are hankering for food from back home then you’ll find it somewhere in our capital city.

Secret Activities

We aren’t really supposed to tell anyone, but there is lots of underground buzz around Cardiff. If you like being in the know and travelling off the beaten track a little bit then this is the perfect city for you. Sure, you have to meet the right people, follow the right Twitter accounts and be in the right place at the right time but the rewards for this knowledge are plentiful!

The Arts

With the Wales Millennium Centre, Sherman Theatre, New Theatre and Chapter Arts around, there are so many different performances to enjoy on a weekly basis that there’s no way that you’ll be able to keep up with it. Everything from the Royal Ballet, to Shakespeare and comedy shows are hosted here, with some of the biggest names in the business – you really will be spoilt for choice!

Unique Activities 

We like to think that Cardiff is pretty special and some of the things you can get up to when you’re here are pretty unique as well! We have an indoor trampoline park that lets you literally bounce off the walls, indoor Go Kart racing with a 400m track featuring a really cool bridge, indoor mini golf with 18 holes that are all rainforest themed – also, thanks to all these activities being inside you can do them all year round without fear of getting wet!
