Croeso i Gaerdydd! Or, if you live east of the Severn, welcome to Cardiff!

The Welsh capital city is jam-packed full of more culture, shopping and entertainment than you can throw a twerk at. If you’re looking to complete your qualification in a vibrant, lively city and have a bit of fun between the theory, head on up the M4!

Famous buccaneer Captain Morgan (yes, the same as the rum man…) is said to have been born in Cardiff in the 1600s. He went on to sail over to Caribbean, fighting a few battles along the way.

If you get caught short, don’t wet fret! Wales Millennium Centre has won the best toilet award for the entertainment sector, not once but twice! Good to know when you’re being a bit crappy…

Far from being a wet and gloomy place, Wales boasts some of the most stunning views in the UK. You only have to venture as far the Brecon Beacons to catch sight of the rolling hills and luscious valleys. With a plethora of well-kept parks in the Cardiff vicinity, spend a short time away from revising by taking an early evening stroll and enjoying the unexpected tranquillity of an inner city park.
