- Recommend me a UK city to live in
Why has no-one mentioned Newport, how stange…
My vote would be Cardiff, really nice place which is easy to reach and a nice size too with loads of good riding and plenty to do there. If you wanted somewhere slower and more relaxed Truro. Not a huge amount of life there like Birmingham or Manc but beaches, nice food and plenty of countryside.Posted 4 years ago
Newport probably THE worst of the main Welsh towns/cities. What a dump.
Not sure why this is banded around a lot. It’s got a small shopping area, nice river, a lot of development and is close to Cardiff and plenty of local riding. Sure it’s not perfect but a lot of people told me this and it put a downer on my initial uni experience but it’s not all that bad. Not trolling just interested as to why this is the concensusPosted 4 years agopoppydiamondMember
OK further details are – no children, looking to rent a 1-2 bed place, I work in healthcare but would prefer a move to charity sector, OH in environmental industry.
What’s the issue with aberdeen? Well it feels really far from the rest of the UK – closest city is small and about 60 miles away. It’s a very grey place and the architecture doesn’t do anything for me. Only one large art gallery which is closing for at least a year. Museums are small and specialised I.e. Maritime museum. Not great for live music or independent cafés. Green space leaves a lot to be desired in parts too.
Edit – other than that it’s lovely 😉Posted 4 years agoSaxonRiderSubscriber
I adore Newcastle, having spent a fair amount of time there, and if I had to somewhere else in the UK, it would definitely be at the top of my list.
That said, I live in Cardiff, and feel that I have everything I could have ever wanted: nature nearby; riding; walking; theatre; cinema; you name it.Posted 4 years agoflap_jackSubscriber
Despite your original post, if you like The Arts it HAS to be London. Nothing compares to living there for a few years.Posted 4 years ago
Living there is nothing like visiting, it’s great whilst you have the vitality for it. I did 8 years and loved it.
Now loving being somewhere 1/2 an hour away so I can immerse myself when I need to.ConquerorMember
Bath Bath ???? have you all gone mad, traffic nightmares and stupidly expensive.
Can walk/cycle pretty much everywhere in Bath (if you live in the city itself)
Property is expensive though yes, but then property is pretty mental in lots of places in the south
Bath is not really comparable to the likes of Bristol, Cardiff etc is it, it’s bloody tiny.
As pointed out by another poster, short train ride for not much money to BristolPosted 4 years ago
