Beyond the City
Cardiff has to be one of the UK’s best-placed cities for outdoor activities. With Wales’ coastline being named as ‘the greatest region on earth to visit in 2012’ by travellers’ bible Lonely Planet, Cardiff students can enjoy surfing, sailing or sunbathing at world-class beaches within an hour’s drive from the city.
In-land, the Brecon Beacons are stunning areas for mountain biking, hiking or horse riding and again are only a short distance from the city itself. Indoor climbing centres, white water rafting and ice skating are also all possible in the city.
Cardiff is also home to an excellent selection of sporting events, from international cricket at the SWALEC stadium, to rugby and football at the Millennium Stadium and Cardiff City Stadium, as well as the annual Speedway motorsport and Wales GB Rally.
