Cardiff Freshers 2019 - Let us show you around!
Cardiff is often described as "the perfect student city" because it is an exciting capital city whilst still being safe and affordable. Why not spent 60 minutes with our experienced Give it a Go tour guides exploring the City Centre? We'll show you all the best, interesting and downright quirky sights that Cardiff has to offer.
With a population of 320,000 people, including 70,000 students, there is plenty to see and do in Cardiff. As one of the newest capital cities in Europe, whether you're after culture, sports, shopping or entertainment Cardiff has it all. Also being one of the small capital cities in Europe everything is of course within walking distance of the Main University Building!
During Freshers Week our tours leave twice daily from the front of the Students' Union. Best of all, they are entirely FREE.
Did you know that as well as a 75,000 seated stadium, Cardiff has a brand new £675 million shopping mall, over 150 pubs, 70+ restaurants, more than 330 parks and gardens, Europe's largest water front development, its own 11th Century Castle, a National Museum, a huge network of arcade shops, an IKEA, an impressive TV and film industry (*cough* Torchwood, Dr Who, Sherlock), dozens of cinemas and theatres, a huge transport hub and it never rains.
Okay we lied about the rain, but everything else is true!
