Cardiff Bay covers a large area, the
vast majority of which has modern, comfortable accommodation much within easy walking distance or a short train ride to
the city centre and university.
The north of Cardiff Bay lies in close proximity to the city
centre and stretches south to Penarth.
From the city centre end it is only a 20 minute walk to the main
University building while the southern points are served by bus and train links
into the city centre.
The Bay is an exciting, developing part of Cardiff providing
modern accommodation with great sea views.
Predominantly apartment accommodation, the majority tend to be privately
owned with some complexes including a pool and gym access within the rental cost.
The waterfront area of Mermaid Quay offers a range of
restaurants, bars and shops including Tesco and Sainsbury's and a number of
smaller boutique shops. The barrage
provides a great opportunity for a stroll or run and the close proximity to the
International sports village provides access to a pool, large gym, ice skating
rink and a white water facility.
The Wales Millennium Centre is right on your doorstep providing the
chance to see both local and touring theatre and opera throughout the
year. Roald Dahl Plass and Cardiff Bay
also hosts many events throughout the year including an International Food
Festival and Cardiff Harbour Festival.
Mermaid Quay provides a hub
for socialising with lots of bars and
clubs, including Bar Cwtch, Terra Nova and Glee comedy club, to name but a
few. Those looking for a spot of culture can check out the Millennium Centre,
which offers opera, dance, theatre and a range of other performance styles
throughout the year. There are also many
dining opportunities including Italian, Sushi, Vegan and Indian with many
restaurants boasting waterfront views.
