About the property

More than 30,000 students study at Cardiff University and live in Cardiff.

And, that’s just one university. Cardiff is home to four universities, each of which is home to many students.

Since this is the case, Cardiff offers a variety of pubs and clubs meant for students. You will find four of the best venues below, as well as the weekly events they offer.

The Live Lounge

Just as the name suggests, The Live Lounge is a lively club that, naturally, offers live music – primarily Indie Rock and Indie Pop – every single day, from 12PM to AM.

During that period, from 9PM to 11PM, every Sunday to Thursday, is “Power Hour”. You can find an abundance of inexpensive cocktails being served during “Power Hour”. These go well with the live music.

To go along with that, The Live Lounge offers daily Happy Hour – the exact times vary – which, like Power Hour, offers a variety of drinks for discounted drinks.

Even though The Live Lounge offers so many discounts, it is rather expensive, when compared to the other venues in this list. But, the price you pay gives you access to, as mentioned, great live music, as well as a big space that is great for dancing.

The Glee Club

Rather than being a traditional club or pub, as with the other venues on this list, The Glee Club is, in fact, a comedy club. A comedy club that hosts live comedy shows almost every day.

Since so many comedians perform at The Glee Club, the quality of each performance tends to vary. But, no matter the performance, the price of a ticket is quite cheap and, to go along with that, a single ticket gets you two discounted drinks.

Outside of comedy, The Glee Club also hosts live musical performances, as well as burlesque shows. None of these events are frequent, but every now and then, The Glee Club hosts them.

Metros Nightclub

Just as you might assume, Metros Nightclub is a nightclub focused on live music and intense dancing. A variety of club events occur throughout the week. Many of these events come with unique DJs who offer their own musical sensibilities.

No matter the music being performed, though, the Metros Nightclub is an intense, energetic place that offers loud, vibrant music, making it easy to dance all night long.

During these long nights of dancing, you can quench your thirst with an abundance of different drinks, all of which are very inexpensive and regularly discounted.

Gassy’s

Out of all the venues in this list, Gassy’s is both the simplest and the most relaxed. Rather than offering wild events and crazy drinks, Gassy’s offers:

Great – And Inexpensive – Food
Inexpensive Drinks
Live Sports On 13 Television Sets
A Pool Table
Arcade Games

To go along with that, Gassy’s offers a variety of weekly discounts. Some of these weekly discounts include:

Midweek Drink’s Basket – Discount Drinks Every Weekday, Before 7PM
Friday Mix – Discount Rum, Vodka, Whiskey, And Gin, Every Friday
Craft & Cocktail Thursday – Discount Cocktails, Pints, And Pitchers, Every Thursday

Outside of those weekly deals, Gassy’s also offers something titled the “Uni Crew”.

The Uni Crew is an offer for students who study in Cardiff. You can, by joining the Uni Crew, receive a free drink, as well as a variety of discounted food and events.

All you must do, to join the Uni Crew, is provide a valid ac.uk email address and sign up to receive marketing emails from Gassy’s.

The city of Cardiff offers a plethora of transport options. You will find these transport options below, as well as some key points to remember, regarding each option.

Outside of the options listed, you can, of course, drive a car, or walk. Many people drive cars in Cardiff and, to go along with that, the city is walkable, making both options perfectly valid.

Cycling In Cardiff

Cycling in Cardiff is easy and enjoyable, due to the city’s flat surfaces and cycling paths.

Some of Cardiff’s most popular cycling paths include:

Taff Trail
Cardiff Bay Trail
Forest Farm Country Park
Bute Park
Sirhowy Valley Country Park

Many of these paths are traffic-free, allowing you to cycle with ease.

Taking The City Bus

The city bus system in Cardiff is run by Cardiff Bus. You can, by riding the Cardiff Bus system, go anywhere in the city, as well as into, and through, Penarth and Barry.

Many of the Cardiff Bus system buses run 24-hours per-week, seven-days per week. This allows you to travel to, and from, any place in the city, no matter what day or time it is.

To ride the bus, you have three options:

Pay In Cash, With Exact Change
Use Your Bank Card
Download, And Use, The Cardiff Bus App

Each one of these options is easy. But, for the most convenient, and affordable, experience possible, you will want to install the Cardiff Bus App.

You can, by using the Cardiff Bus App, purchase tickets that extend across multiple days. This allows you to save some money and forfeit the need to purchase new tickets regularly.

Some pricing options include:

A Week Ticket – £14.50
A Four-Week Ticket – £53

For those who prefer buying bus tickets on the day they will be used, you can purchase:

A Single-Ride Ticket – £2
A Full-Day Ticket – £4

No matter the option you choose, riding the bus in Cardiff is easy and pleasant.

Riding The Train

The city of Cardiff is home to 20 railway stations. Every single one of these railway stations is connected to points within the city, as well as the towns and cities outside of Cardiff.

Some of the locations these railway stations can take you to include:

Swansea
Manchester
Liverpool
London
Nottingham

The cost of a train ticket depends on: where you’re going and the type of accommodation you would like. But, no matter what, the price is inexpensive and the accommodation is comfortable.

The entire city of Cardiff is rich with places to explore and things to do. You will find some of these places, and a collection of things to do within those places, right below.

National Museum Cardiff

The history of Wales is too vast to fit into a book. But, even so, you can find much of it – the most important pieces, more specifically – housed within National Museum Cardiff.

Some of the most notable attractions at National Museum Cardiff include:

Beautiful Displays That Depict Wales’ History
Old Items That Were Once Common Centuries Ago
Paintings From Monet And Picasso

Each one of these exhibits is completely free. You can walk into the museum, and wander around, without spending any money. But, donations are, of course, always welcome.

Cardiff Castle

The city of Cardiff is home to many castles. Out of all the castles within the city, though, Cardiff castle is both the most famous and, if you ask Cardiff’s residents, the most beloved.

The reason for this is quite simple: Cardiff Castle is the most well-preserved castle in Cardiff and, quite possibly, the most well-preserved castle in Wales.

Some of the well-preserved spaces in Cardiff Castle include:

The Banquet Hall
The Library
The Castle Apartments

For many visitors, the Castle Apartments are a favourite, as each apartment contains well-preserved structures and items, each one belonging to the centuries comprising the 2,000-year period Cardiff Castle was inhabited.

Outside of the Castle Apartments, every other space within the castle offers thorough outlines of who lived in the castle and what they did. This goes well with the items and structures, each of which further highlights the who once lived within the castle.

Cardiff Bay

Cardiff Bay is 500-acres and, as such, the largest lake within the city. Right on the long paths that run along the Cardiff Bay the lake, you will find an abundance of:

Museums
Restaurants
Cafes
Art Galleries
Luxury Mansions
Parks

Each one of these, along with other attractions that weren’t listed, serves to highlight the class, sophistication, and history that Cardiff is known for.

Right along the northern edge of Cardiff Bay, is the Cardiff Bay Wetlands. Many spaces within the Cardiff Bay Wetlands are closed. But, some of these spaces are open, and these spaces offer beautiful landscapes as well as:

Dragonflies
Grey Herons
Kingfishers
Reed Buntings
Sedge Warblers

The sheer size of the Cardiff Bay Wetlands – 8 hectares – as well as the biodiversity on display make it a must-visit for those who enjoy hiking.

Taff Trail

The Taff Trail begins in Cardiff Bay – at the “Roald Dahl Plass”, to be specific – and takes you across the Brecon Beacons National Park.

All throughout the Taff Trail, you will find:

Old Bridges
Beautiful City Gardens
Grey Herons
Castell Coch
The Taff River

Since the Taff Trail is a total of 80 kilometres, you cannot walk it in one day. But, the trail is directly connected to Cardiff. You can enter Taff Trail at numerous points in Cardiff, and enter the city again, at numerous points on the trail.
