    Personally I'd pick Cardiff as I loved the university and the city. It has a great atmosphere and the accommodation is nice enough (and well priced - at least it was when I looked). Plus, being a capital city, it has a good range of things going on and the SU is pretty amazing.

    And, walking along the tree lined streets with the great white stone university buildings is quite special (if you are into buildings etc that is lol).

    That said, I didn't look around Durham and went off pretty extensive research into the colleges and departments of History and English. I had friends who visited it and loved it and some who hated it. I guess it is each to their own...

    Shush you :p: Both Wales (even just Cardiff and its surrounding areas) and County Durham have wonderful castles. Although if you bring Northumberland into the debate then there's no contest which area wins
    Yes ... Wales:

    "Since Wales has more castles per capita than any other country in the world"

    Well, Northumberland has more castles than any other county (I think).

    Castell Coch, was just there the other week. That's also not a proper castle, but is lovely nonetheless

    About Cardiff's architecture, there was a thread a few weeks ago asking what the most beautiful unis were. It was the usual contenderes, Durham, St Andrews and a few others. But I think Cardiff is very underrated. It occupes the civic centre and two buildings in particular (the main building and the Glamorgan building) are fine neo-classical buildings. I think the Glamorgan building used to be the council chambers. It really is stunning.

    Not that a law student would be studying there
