Cardiff is the largest city in Wales and the ninth largest in the UK. It is also the county town for the county of Glamorgan and is surrounded by beautiful green hills on all sides but the south, where it borders the Severn Estuary and Bristol Channel. Cardiff is a major university town, renowned for its history, culture and nightlife but probably most notably, as the home of the Welsh national rugby team who play at the Millennium stadium.
Cardiff House Prices & Redevelopment
Cardiff’s property market was hit extremely hard by the economic crisis that struck the UK in 2007. Within a year, average house prices dropped by 30%, planning applications dropped by 70%, new house building froze completely and many half completed developments were put on hold as the local housing market imploded.
Ken Poole, Head of Economic Development at Cardiff council, believes the Welsh capital has all the tools necessary to aid growth however, highlighting the fact that office space is far more affordable in Cardiff than in London, and that the capital will be only two hours away following the planned electrification of the railway in 2018. In light of this, Cardiff is optimistic that it will receive a substantial amount of financial sector investment, similar to that it received prior to the financial crisis, that will attract many highly qualified individuals as-well as high profile employers.
Alongside significant redevelopment schemes taking place to Cardiff Bay and the city centre, homeowners will be hopeful that house prices can climb there way up to the levels seen before the financial crisis.
Cardiff Culture, Attractions & Things to Do
As has been previously mentioned, Cardiff is rugby mad, being home to the Cardiff Blues and the Millennium stadium, that houses the national teams for both rugby and football. It’s sporting prowess is undoubtedly owed to the fact that Cardiff boasts more green spaces per person than any other core UK city. With the beautiful Cardiff Parklands Palace & Gardens being a particular popular place to take a stroll, with the Twmbarlwm mountain being a great place for hiking.
Regularly ranked on National Geographic’s list of the best alternative tourist destinations, Cardiff attracts almost 20 million visitors annually. History and architecture buffs have Llandaff Cathedral, the medieval Cardiff Castle and Castell Coch to enjoy, with the later being described as being like something straight out of a fairy tale. The Mermaid Quay, Castle Quarter, St. David’s shopping centre and the extensively redeveloped Cardiff Bay offer everything from restaurants, cafés and bars to boutique shops and service stores.
Then there’s the nightlife. Notwithstanding the Llandaff Cardiff Ghost Walk, Cardiff is famous nationwide for its vibrant and active night scene. There are scores of traditional pubs, live music venues and clubs to suit all tastes, with St. Mary’s Street and Greyfriars Road being the most lively in this regard.
Although there is plenty to pack in when visiting Cardiff, whatever you do, don’t leave until you’ve checked out the view from the top of Garth Hill.
History of Cardiff
Archaeological evidence shows signs of Neolithic settlement in Cardiff that dates back to at least 1,500 years before Stonehenge was built. Bronze Age tumuli and Iron Age forts dotted within Cardiff’s county border attest to the fact that the area was continually inhabited from this point onward.
It’s population and significance ebbed and flowed over the centuries, only being Wales’ 25th largest settlement as of 1801. Following extensive infrastructural developments such as the construction of the Marquess of Bute’s dock, the arrival of the railways and the huge increase in the demand for coal, which Cardiff’s hinterlands had aplenty, meant that by 1981 Cardiff had become the largest town in the country. Cardiff gained city status from Edward VII in 1905 and became the official capital of Wales in 1955.
