Cardiff Bay

Overlooking the sea of the Bristol Channel, one of Cardiff’s most admired areas, both locals and tourists alike, is the Cardiff Bay. What used to be known as the docklands, Cardiff Bay is Wales’ oldest multi-ethnic community as sailors and workers from over 50 countries settled there many years ago. The bay has a whole range of various attractions; the regulars of shops, cafes, restaurants, bars and pubs, to all kinds of various entertainment and cultural activities like the Science Centre, Craft in the Bay Gallery, the Wales Millennium Centre and many different history and arts centres.

Sports

It’s very rare that international sports arenas are located in city centres, but the Welsh are passionate about sport, namely Rugby, so the Millennium Stadium stands both huge and proud in Cardiff. In fact, Rugby Union has a long history in Wales and is the national sport of the country, so it’s rightly so that it is celebrated and paraded patriotically through the nation’s capital. People travel from all ends of the world to attend sporting events in Wales- matches, festivals and exhibitions alike. How great would it be to have world famous sporting events on your doorstep?

Adventure

If you’re moving abroad to study, then you’re probably looking for an adventure? What says adventure better than mastering a new adrenaline-pumping sport? Around Cardiff Bay there are many opportunities to learn white water rafting, sailing, windsurfing, power boating, fishing or wakeboarding? There’s even indoor surfing in the area. You don’t always have to pay by the session, joining a club is much more sociable and enjoyable!
