Cardiff crowned UK’s number one city to live in
This is not a lie
The Welsh capital has even ranked above London, Bristol and Edinburgh in a new MoneySuperMarket report.
Cardiff was found to have the lowest average living cost at £359/week, and one of the lowest unemployment rates at 8.1%.
The rankings include the cost of living, disposable income, unemployment and general satisfaction.
Marc, a third year English Language student, told The Tab: “It’s no surprise to see cities outside of London do what London was once so great for.
“In Cardiff the prices are unbeatable, there’s everything you could ever need in the city centre, and it feels like a place where things actually happen.”
Demi, a third year Biochemistry student, said: “I think that Cardiff has the right balance.
“Even though it’s a city I feel like it’s not as intense as places like London and people are 100 times more friendly, probably because they are Welsh.
“Being from Wales and coming from a small town, moving to Cardiff was enjoyable and I felt easy to fit in also the prices of things are so reasonable compared to basically anywhere else.”
Bristol was knocked from the top spot, while Belfast came in second.
Swansea did not feature in the study, but we’re pretty sure it would’ve finished below Cardiff.
