Welcome to Pontcanna

Pontcanna is sandwiched between the city centre and canton and is the closest thing that Cardiff has to a north London suburb. It has everything you'd expect; coffee shops, restaurants, organic food shops, boutique shops and beauticians. It's close to Pontcanna Fields and the beautiful Bute Park which links to the Taff Trail and Cardiff Castle. It's a lovely area to live, very popular with professionals who are looking to balance city and family life.

Parking can be an issue and Cathedral Road, which is the main route through to town, is often gridlocked at rush hour. But the large Victorian, bay fronted terrace houses and tree lined avenues have a way of making this area a highly desirable location.
