Young persons (16-18) can purchase a discounted weekly ticket, but cycling and walking are popular with students.

Discover Collegiate Cardiff

Cardiff has been named as one of the top ten cities in Europe, combining both the new and the old with ease. The modern Millennium Stadium sits close by Cardiff’s famous castle; both are equally visible from the city centre and are not far from the vibrant Cardiff Bay area.

It is a city that offers much, from shopping to sport, and from entertainment of every sort, to a host of multicultural eating experiences.

At the heart of the city are a series of Palladian buildings, including the University of Wales, funded by the wealthy Marquess of Bute in the late 1800’s. In the tradition of rebuilding started by the Marquess, much of central Cardiff has been redeveloped and the area south of the University consists mainly of the glass ‘towers’ of modernity.
