Spending summer in Cardiff

by jaydigity

Myself and a couple of friends are thinking of working for the summer in Britain. There're a few cities we are considering going to and to help us narrow our (very long list) I was just wondering if anyone would like to offer some input as to whether or not Cardiff would be a good choice for the summer.
We'd be looking for somewhere where
- Job availibility won't be a problem
- A decent nightlife for 20 year olds
- Cheap cost of living, or at least, not expensive
- There's a nice amount of touristy things to do.

Edinburgh, for example, is exactly the kind of place I'm looking for, but I've already visited it, so would like to try somewhere new

Really, REALLY appreciate feedback!

i think cardiff is a good choice. The students should have left, so jobs shouldnt be a problem. There is a large choice of nightlife and plenty of places to visit in the area, such as castles, beaches, mountains etc.
Cost of living is probably much the same as anywhere, we have Lidl and Aldi for cheap foods etc.

We'd be looking for somewhere where
- Job availibility won't be a problem = Lots of casual work in bars etc.

- A decent nightlife for 20 year olds = Cardiff is rated amongst the best for nightlife, so no problem. Bring ID as many clubs insist on you being over 21.

- Cheap cost of living, or at least, not expensive = Cheap? Not cheap to stay in as rents are high. Most everything else is same as rest of UK, except taxis! Give them a wide berth, a big time rip off.

- There's a nice amount of touristy things to do. = A summer wont be long enough. Don't go looking for a beach though. cardiff doesn't have one but there are plenty within a bus ride.

Travel Tips for Cardiff

A Millenarium Castle and the Millenium Stadium!

by lolitajane

CARDIFF CASTLE! It's an amazing experience...2000 years of history, first THE ROMANS in the 1st century AD, the THE NORMAN CONQUEST and finally JOHN BUTE... best known as the 3rd Marquess.Have a look at my travelogue for more info & pictures.
Location: Castle St. Cardiff CF10 3RB Walking along Bute Park is one of my fondest memories...it's such a beautiful park, full of colourful flowers, huge trees, and squirrels! There's a bridge above river Taff. Have a look at my travelogue for more info & pictures.

Welsh language

by HORSCHECK

About a quarter of the Welsh population still speak the ancient Celtic language Welsh, which is not an English dialect. To promote the Welsh language, most roadsigns are bilingual in Wales: English and Welsh.

When visiting a foreign country, it is always nice and helpful to speak at least a few words in the local language. So here are a few useful phrases in Welsh:

Cymru = Wales
Shw mae = Hello
Bore da = Good morning
Dydd da = Good day
Hwyl = Bye
Diolch = Thanks

Watch a 'Cardiff Blues' rugby match

by aaaarrgh

The Cardiff Blues are Cardiff's local rugby union side. Their home ground is next door to the Millennium Stadium, at the Cardiff Arms Park.

Cardiff is one of the oldest rugby sides in existence, founded in 1876. Only a few years ago they were an extremely good team. More recently, they have been a bit mediocre, more's the pity!

For a brief history of Welsh rugby see the rugby tip on my Wales page.

Cardiff Arms Park is a really good place to see a game of rugby. It is right in the centre of the city and (especially with the Cardiff Blues not playing too well) easy to buy tickets on match nights. There are frequent matches during the rugby season, often on a weekday evening.

Tickets for adults are about £14, children about £5. These are the cheapest prices for the 'terraces' where you have to stand up. There are also seated areas elsewhere. Unless the match is very full (not often) you should have no problem finding somewhere to stand on the terraces to see the match. Rugby crowds are good humoured and never violent. There is a good family atmosphere at matches, with men, women and children.

Try shouting "Surely that's a penalty!!" or "That Craig Quinnell is a useless tub-of-lard!!" if you want to sound like a rugby expert ;-))

Cardiff Castle Walls

by lolitajane

Try to spot the animals made of concrete all along the Castle's walls, they are really nice! The one in the pic is a lioness..and there are also monkeys, lions, birds and others!
Aren't they nice?

Good Fishing beach

by percy961

The beach is popular with a lot of anglers due its ease of access and the fact that high water you have a good depth of water within easy casting distance. The beach is about one mile long and runs from Cold Knap point in the east to Porthkerry in the west. It is a steep shingle beach, With. A half decent cast of about 50 to 60 yards at high water is enough distance to put you on to the sand

There are a large number of spieces that can be caught from this beach. In the summer you can catch Rays, Conger, Pouting, Dogfish and the odd Bass. In the winter the beach has been known to produce vast amounts of Whiting with some good sized Cod but over the last couple of years the beach has not lived up to its reputation from yester year.
