Cardiff offers capital city living benefits

Cardiff offers capital city living benefits

The capital city of Wales has developed into a major hub for people moving to Wales.

However, unlike the capital city of England, Cardiff's housing prices remain affordable for many and could appeal to anyone planning to move to Wales.

Recent years have seen a boom in retail, real estate and commercial developments meaning the city offers a wide range of top-quality facilities.

There is a great choice of shopping in the two main retail areas of Queen Street and St Mary Street, while there is also a number of Victorian arcades throughout the city, which offer a chance to pick up something more unusual or a little quirky.

For those looking to enjoy a good night out, Mill Lane is home to plenty of lovely restaurants and various clubs came be found in the Brewery Quarter and along St Mary Street. There are also two major cinemas offering all the latest blockbuster films.

Cardiff is quickly developing a reputation as a vibrant city, in part due to the rise in student numbers and workers who have relocated from around the world.

One of the key advantages is that it remains geographically small so it is easy for residents to get around without spending a lot of time travelling or being stuck in a traffic jam.

Sports fans will be interested in the number of big events that are held at the city's Millennium Stadium, including international football and rugby matches.

There is also the chance to see leading football side Cardiff City play regularly.

One of the other advantages is that Cardiff is well-placed, with Bristol just over 40 miles away via the M4, while Newport is around a ten minute train journey away. For those wanting to get away, the Brecon Beacons National Park is also just a short drive.

Those looking for property for sale in Cardiff will quickly discover there is a whole range to choose from, with the Bay Area offering up-to-date developments, while more Victorian period-style properties can be found in the Pontcanna and Llandaff suburbs.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801708094-ADNFCR
