Best areas to live in Cardiff

A compact capital, Cardiff offers so many great areas to live. Whether you’re after a suburban retreat, a bustling high street, or a beachfront property, rest assured there’s the ideal place for you.


Located 10 minutes outside of Cardiff city centre, this quiet suburb is made up of beautiful Victorian houses, which cost an average of £317,132. Heath Park and Roath Park are right on your doorstop, and offer plenty of opportunities for beautiful walks and bike rides – and you’ll get to enjoy stunning views of the city and bay too.


Situated three miles north of the city centre, Cyncoed is popular amongst families, due to its proximity to two of the best schools in the city, in addition to one of the University campuses. Property prices here are more expensive, at an average of £353,842, but it’s near to Cardiff Golf Club and picturesque Llanishen Reservoir.


Its beachfront location is what makes Penarth such an attractive place to live, as well as being so well-connected, with trains to Cardiff taking just 8 minutes; making it popular with both retirees and commuters. Properties here cost an average of £352,304, which is unsurprising, given that in addition to a beautiful beach, Penarth is also home to six tranquil parks.

Cardiff Bay

For those who want to be in the centre of the action without being in the city, Cardiff Bay is the ideal choice. Enjoy waterside dining in one of the many bars and restaurants that line the edge of the lake (the Bay is home to the likes of Cosy Club, Bill’s and more), or take part in some water sports at the Sailing Centre. On average, properties located here sell for £216,580.


Regularly cited as one of the coolest places to live in Cardiff, Canton is home to a big arts and foodie scene, with the likes of Danish bakery Brød and Indian street food outlet Chai Street right on your doorstep. Access to the city centre is easy, as it’s just a 15-minute drive away. On average, properties sell for £260,358, making it one of the more affordable areas to live.

Things to do in Cardiff

With so many things to do in Cardiff, you definitely won’t get bored. And if you fancy a day trip out of the city, Bristol is just a 45-minute train ride away!

Stroll around Bute Park and Cardiff Castle

With 130 acres of parkland located in the heart of the city centre, Bute Park is beautiful to visit at any time of the year. Be sure to check out the sculpture park, featuring 20 wooden sculptures each carved by different artists. For history fans, extend your day trip with a walk around Cardiff Castle – dating back to 50AD, where you’ll get to see the apartments, the Norman Keep, and even the firing wall.

Visit the Norwegian Church Arts Centre

A true landmark by the bay, the Norwegian Church boasts beautiful views, and it’s also the place where Roald Dahl was baptised. Now, it’s been transformed into an art gallery, where you can see exhibitions from local Welsh artists.

Dine at The Clink

Dine out with a difference at The Clink. Located in Her Majesty’s Prison Cardiff, you’ll have delicious dishes cooked and served to you by inmates, through their rehabilitation programme, designed to stop them from reoffending. Inmates who take part work 40 hours a week whilst studying for their qualifications, to help them get a job when they’re released.

Enjoy a Dr Who tour

Cult TV classic Dr Who was largely filmed in and around Cardiff, and now you can relive the action with a walking tour. From Dyffryn Gardens to The National Museum of Wales, St Mary’s Street and many more locations, you can either do your own walking tour, or join a guided one, where you’ll get to hear lots of facts along the way.

Spend the afternoon at Spillers Records

Dating back to 1894, Spillers could well claim the crown as being the oldest record store in the world. Full of timeless classics and hidden gems, it’s a must-visit when you’re living in Cardiff. Even if you’re not that into records, it’s worth a visit for the musical merch, and the many bands that play gigs there.
