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.”
