MAN on Campus Student City Guide: Cardiff 


Welcome to Cardiff, Wales capital city and a real crowd pleaser. Cardiff is known for it’s romantic historic landmarks, and it’s music scene which envies many larger cities. There is more green space per head in Cardiff then any another UK city, so you really do get the best of both worlds!

The Dough Thrower is the place to go for authentic, wood fired pizza in Cardiff! All dough is handmade and left to ferment for 96 hours before it’s ready to be shaped into your pizza of choice. With gluten free, veggie AND vegan options it’s the place to cater for all your flat mates. Our favourite is the iberico, make sure to try it!


Time and Beef

Time and Beef is the place to go for the freshest, best tasting burger you’ll ever have.
