Cardiff!
What's it like?

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