Why move to Cardiff?
Cardiff is the cosmopolitan capital city of Wales and the eleventh largest city in the UK. The city has undergone a rapid transformation in recent years to position itself at the forefront of the UK culture and arts scene.
It’s rapidly developing technology sector and foodie culture has seen many families ditch the polluted, overcrowded streets of London to establish themselves in the green Welsh capital.
A city of proud sporting traditions, Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium has hosted several 6 Nations tournaments and Rugby world cup matches, as well as a UEFA Champions League final.
Cardiff recently became a BBC creative hub through the BBC Drama Village which hosts such famous shows as Dr Who.
The Welsh capital is a breath of fresh air (quite literally) — to the South you’ll find the beautiful beaches of the Gower Peninsular while a direct cycle north from the city will take you into the rolling hills of the Brecon Beacons.
The thriving cultural scene consists of food festivals, pop-up cinemas and various music festivals held throughout the year, so those leaving London will not be missing out.
The city is incredibly well connected with an international airport and rail links with the rest of Wales and large UK cities such as Bristol (50 minutes) and London (2 hours).
Working in Cardiff
Cardiff is a working city and offers many diverse opportunities across the technology, media and education sectors. Traditional industries such as coal mining and steel manufacturing have largely given way to science, service and financial industries and tourism-related jobs.
The capital has become a de facto base for the Welsh media. Porth Teigr is a 38-acre mixed-use, sustainable development project located in Cardiff Bay and is home to television production companies and BBC Cymru Wales’ drama studios.
There are often employment opportunities for those keen to have a career in TV, acting and broadcasting.
Employment in the media sector has grown over recent years to provide employment for around 2.1 percent of Cardiff’s workforce, according to the Office for National Statistics.
Cardiff University is part of the prestigious Russell Group of research-intensive universities and is also one of the largest employers in the region.

If you enjoy browsing market stalls, head for the Victorian indoor Cardiff Central Market and the Riverside Community Market, specialising in locally produced organic fare. The street food circus is a must for foodies, stocking a wide range of foods from South America to Japan.
Cardiff Castle is one of Wales’ leading heritage attractions and is great way to spend a day. The magnificent Cardiff Civic Centre which includes the National Museum of Wales, the tranquil Alexandra Gardens and the Science Exhibition Centre are all informative excursions.
Why not take in a show at one of Wales’ premier venues: the Millennium stadium or the Motorpoint Arena. The latter is home to a musical show which sees classical musicians play hit scores from the second Harry Potter film as you watch the film on a high definition screen and is a must see!
Once you have relocated to your new home in Cardiff, there is a whole host of important things you need to organise.
