Moving to South Wales

Many people moving to South Wales are enticed by its incredible history and beauty, not to mention the famous sports arenas within the area such as Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium. It is a popular destination for people moving from England due to its vast amount of job opportunities, and also because of how close it is geographically.

Work and Commuting

South Wales has an increasingly low unemployment rate, with plenty of job opportunities to suit all types of people, making it an ideal place to move to. It takes just under an hour to drive from Bristol to Newport or Cardiff via the M4, and many people choose to travel by car or train to work each day. Trains run to all the major towns and cities in South Wales, which makes it a perfect destination for those who like an easy journey to work.


The scenic valleys and historic nature of South Wales ensures that it will be a peaceful yet interesting place to move to on retirement. Within South Wales there are many places to enjoy quiet walks, such as Wye Valley, which has gorgeous scenery and gourmet dining – perfect for those wanting a special treat. Both Wye Valley and the Valley of Usk have the most castles per square mile in Britain, ensuring that once you are retired you will never run out of things to visit here. 

Relaxed lifestyle

South Wales is perfect for those wanting a break from city life, with its unspoiled valleys and beaches, which are ideal for relaxing. Gower Peninsula is home to one of Britain’s most dazzling beaches.  When living in South Wales there are also a number of outdoor activities to take part in, including bike rides, kayaking, horse-riding and walking. The area is also known for its inspiring artists, writers and poets, due to its nature and splendour which helps to attract those interested in being creative and inventive.


Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium hosts huge events, such as the football matches during the Olympics and the 6 Nations Rugby Matches. This draws many sports fanatics into moving to South Wales, and is a huge attraction of the area.

Spotlight on Major Areas of South Wales

Cardiff is the capital of Wales and is the tenth largest city in the United Kingdom. Cardiff is known as being a tourist centre, with 18.3 million visitors in 2010, making it the most popular tourist destination in Wales. It is also ranked sixth in the world in terms of tourist destinations. Cardiff is home to the Millennium Stadium, the SWALEC Stadium and Cardiff City Stadium amongst many others, and as a result was awarded with the European City of Sport in 2009 and then again in 2014.

Four in ten of the city’s workforce are daily commuters from the surrounding South Wales area. Commuters travel from all areas to get to Cardiff, with trains running from almost all locations within the UK to Cardiff. For visitors travelling from London, the Great Western Railway operates an hourly train service from London Paddington which takes just two hours.
Cardiff is the perfect destination for nature lovers, with its parks, mountains and castles all around. It’s small and easy to navigate, and is cleaned till it is spotless after all sports events!

The Vale of Glamorgan is known for its dramatic landscape, with sunny beach resorts in Barry Island and Porthcawl surrounded by coastal countryside and green hills. For a look into the history of Glamorgan, you can visit Coity Castle to see the ruins of a Norman Castle which was built by a knight during the 12th century.

The coastline of Glamorgan is 88 miles long and stretches from Trowbridge in the east to Gower in the west. Gower is said to be one of the most beautiful beaches in Britain, and is an ideal place to move to if you enjoy walks along the beach and a stunning morning view. Along this coast you can see both immense cliffs and sandy dunes, but if you live further inland within Glamorgan then you can expect to see major rivers such as the Taff, the Ely, the Ogmore, the Neath and many more.

Swansea is a coastal city within Glamorgan which is situated on the sandy South West Wales coast. Swansea has plenty of activities to enjoy whilst you live here, including plays, festivals and sports matches.

Monmouthshire can be found between the Brecon Beacons National Park and the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The stunning landscape will take your breath away, as will the castles, mountains, views and food.

Within Monmouthshire you can ride bikes, play golf, learn to paddleboard, visit the market and learn more about the history. Monmouthshire is a relaxed place to live, but has huge amounts of activities for those who enjoy keeping busy, with over 1000 miles of public footbaths to walk. For adventurous people moving to Monmouthshire you can even go on a tandem paragliding flight off the Blorenge.
