Cardiff!
What's it like?

Cardiff delivers everything you demand of a capital city, including its modern waterfront, ancient castle, and cutting-edge shopping districts that draw visitors from all over. But it’s on weekends that the city really comes into its own, when revelers and students alike come out to explore a vibrant and distinctive cultural scene. With surrounding valleys and beaches to be discovered, Cardiff is a modern student city with more.
