    Bristol is quite an ugly city imo. Cardiff is a little nicer, especially around the park and castle.

    :five:

    Cardiff has everything exactly where you want it to be.

    Bristol may be considered a better uni but I prefer Cardiff.

    What course is this for?

    Bristol is pretty ugly, awesome for gigs though.

    Cardiff is quite a pretty city, has pretty much everything you could want. The uni is probably slightly worse though, depending on what you're studying. Great shopping in Cardiff I'm told (not a shopper myself but hey...)

    Also, if you're a rugby fan, Cardiff is awesome

    I'm a little biased. I haven't really visited Bristol as much as I'd like (I'll be checking it out more next summer when visiting Cardiff again and Bath). I think Cardiff's a great city. It's just the right size, suprisingly compact for a city centre. With the regeneration that's been going on it has a youthful buzz about it.

    What should you see? Depends what your interests are? I could name the usual sights (Cardiff Bay, Millennium stadium, National Museum, Chapter Arts centre, Ffotogallery, the castle and Bute park...) but I'd also recommend its shopping boutiques and Spillers (the oldest record shop in the world). Well, if music is your thing. Oh, and Castel Coch just outside the city



    :love:

    I will stick up for Bristol's aesthetics. I think it's one of our prettiest cities, up there with the likes of Newcastle, Liverpool, Bath, Durham and York. It offers a fascinating range of architecture. Not just redbrick Victorian, for example, but from the Mediaeval periof up to the 21st century. Sure, it has its run down parts, but so do all cities.
