Cardiff: The largest city in Wales boasts great transport links and waterfront bars and restaurants

Anyone considering moving to the south-west who is looking for the excitement of metropolitan living should consider property for sale in Cardiff.

With a population of nearly 350,000, it is the largest city in Wales and enjoys great transport links, courtesy of trains with fast connections to Birmingham, London and Manchester.

The M4 motorway links Cardiff to England and the airport services both domestic and international flights.

It is enjoying something of a regeneration at the moment, thanks to the new waterfront area at Cardiff Bay, which is home to the Senedd building that houses the Wales Millennium Centre arts complex.

Anyone hoping to live and work in Cardiff will no doubt be interested to learn that part of this development includes the building of a new business district located in the city centre.

Sports fans are well looked after, as venues include the Millennium Stadium, home of the Wales national rugby union and football teams, and the Glamorgan County Cricket Club, to name but a few.

Cardiff Bay offers a big selection of cafes, bars and restaurants. So, for anyone looking for Welsh, Turkish, Chinese, Indian, Italian, French and Thai food with a waterfront view, this is the place to be.

As a university town, there is a buzzing nightlife and plenty of late-night bars and nightclubs to enjoy.

The city has numerous shopping centres, in addition to the smaller Edwardian and Victorian arcades that are home to some independent retailers.

Foodies will not be disappointed either, as Cardiff has one of the best farmers' markets in the UK.

Aside from the arts centre, those interested in culture can visit Cardiff Castle, St David's Hall and Llandaff Cathedral. There are also a number of museums in the city and the Welsh National War Memorial.

In addition to the town's universities, there are also three nurseries, 98 state primary schools, 20 state secondary schools, plus a number of independent institutions.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801747586-ADNFCR
