Living in Cardiff - expected lifestyle changes?
July 19, 2014 2:52 AM Subscribe
I am an academic and am likely about to take up a position at Cardiff University. I currently live in a small-ish (250K) Dutch city, which I love. I like the compact city center, I like walking everywhere (shopping, market, coffee, train station), I like the robust public transportation. I dislike car culture. What do I need to know about Cardiff?

I'm specifically interested in the following things:
1. How is the public transportation? Are there some areas that are better than others?
2. Do I need a car?
3. What are the best areas to live for an academic couple with no kids and a dog (I'm used to open air markets with fresh produce, nice cafes, green space, etc)?
4. What should I keep in mind while looking for a place to live (I'm not a Brit and have never lived in GB, so keep that in mind)?
