City of Cardiff

Cardiff is a compact city bursting with life. As Europe’s youngest capital city, it’s a cultural location that has lots to offer, especially if you’re a young professional or family looking to bring children in a lively city. With booming nightlife, a delicious food scene and that Welsh pride running through every street, buying a new home here puts you right at the heart of Welsh culture.

New builds in Cardiff

A home in Cardiff allows you to immerse yourself in the hustle and bustle of a city that’s dotted with green spaces and the tranquil Cardiff Bay. You get to experience the benefits of a city as well as the spirit of a small town. Its surrounding villages and suburbs have retained that quaint community feel. Creigiau, for example, is less than 30 minutes away, and is well connected to larger locations like Newport and Bristol, yet comes with that small-town life.

Living in City of Cardiff

Booming music scene

Cardiff is a multi-faceted city, but two pinnacles that really stand out are its music and sports scenes. Home to the Motorpoint Arena, Principality Stadium and St David’s music hall have showcased everyone from global stars, such as Beyonce, Ed Sheeran and Tina Turner - to the latest upcoming acts.

Smaller independent venues include The Moon, 1920s-inspired The Bootlegger and Fuel, the only dedicated rock club in the city. All of these venues are within walking distance of the train station and provide entertainment all year round, so you’ll never be bored when living here.

Sports and leisure

If you’d prefer to watch a game that’s just a stone’s throw away from your new build, then Cardiff offers that, too. Rugby is the city’s frontrunner but it also hosted the UEFA Cup final and the Ashes in 2009. If football and cricket aren’t your thing, then try kayaking at the International Sports Village, which sits alongside the Bay, or its excellent, British Horse Society (BHS)-approved Riding School.

Eat your heart out

Wales has given us some fantastic foods, from sugary Welsh cakes and cheesy rarebit to Glamorgan sausages and the Aberffraw biscuit - said to be the oldest biscuit in the UK. But Cardiff itself has a great food scene, just what you need when stocking the cupboards, ordering a takeaway or eating out when living here.

There are a number of Michelin Star restaurants to choose from, such as Heathcock and Thomas, or you can try cosier eateries like La Pantera and Milkwood. There are a variety of food markets dotted throughout the city, providing mouth-watering foods for you to tuck into when walking to and from your Cardiff home.

New housing developments in Cardiff

Cardiff has lots to offer homeowners, with a variety of amenities and attractions to entertain all the family throughout the year. There’s plenty of opportunity in terms of careers and education, and its flavoursome food scene will keep stomachs full as you go from place to place.
