What do I need to know about staying in Cardiff?

Transport

As with the rest of the UK, the public transport in Cardiff is widely available and incredibly efficient. With a variety of bus services and bus cards available, there is also a large train station that provides access to key changing stations such as Birmingham New Street and Bristol Temple Meads. As with any capital city anywhere in the world, there is an abundance of taxi ranks around the city enabling quick travel from any one of our serviced apartments in Cardiff. 

Weather

Wales is very similar to the rest of the UK in that it has wet and cold winters and mild temperate summers. With highs of around 22 degrees in the summer and lows of 0 degrees in the winter, as well as clearer skies in the summer. It is often thought that it rains in Wales more than any other UK country, however this is not strictly the case.

Cuisine

With traditional Welsh such as Welsh Rarebit and Welsh Cakes rarely served in restaurants across the city, Cardiff is home to plenty of chain restaurants. This partnered with your typical kebab and fish and chip houses you see all over the UK, shows that Cardiff does not differ in terms of national cuisine.

Language

Welsh is still spoken in some parts of Cardiff, however English is by far and away the most spoken language. It is thought only around 20% of the Welsh population speak Welsh, with most adopting the main spoken language, English. This means that when on business staying in Cardiff corporate housing, you don’t have to worry about having to understand the local tongue.

What is Cardiff known for?

Cardiff Castle

If you are visiting Cardiff for the first time, then it is important to grasp an understanding behind the history of the city. Built in the 11th century the castle was built by Norman invaders and is situated nearby some of our serviced apartments in Cardiff. Cardiff Castle is an excellent area to explore when you have some free time in the city.

Principality Stadium

The home of Welsh Rugby, if you find yourself staying in one of our Cardiff apartments whilst an international rugby match is being held, then this venue is a must go. The locals are absolutely crazy about rugby especially when playing their close rivals the English. If you want to experience some true Welsh spirit, then taking a client or a partner to Principality Stadium is a great form of hospitality when staying in a nearby Cardiff serviced apartment.
