A Great Place to Live and Work

Cardiff really is a city of contrasts. A castle with 1900 years of history stands alongside a modern shopping centre and a spectacular Civic Centre surrounded by acres of parkland.

The Cardiff Bay development has created eight miles of waterfront with a range of new apartments, bars and restaurants.

For those seeking more culture there is easy access to the National Museum and Gallery Cardiff, the Museum of Welsh Life and the Wales Millennium Centre, home of the Welsh National Opera.

Situated to the west of Cardiff, the Vale of Glamorgan offers a mixture of gentle rolling hills, charming towns and villages, and a dramatic natural coastline which includes part of the Glamorgan Heritage Coast.

Surrounded by areas of outstanding natural beauty, with the Brecon Beacons National Park, Swansea Gower Peninsula and the picturesque Vale of Glamorgan all nearby, Cardiff really does have it all.

Housing is reasonably priced, and our schools offer a high standard of education and facilities.
