Getting around Cardiff

Cardiff as a city is relatively compact, with the majority of the attractions, shops, restaurants and bars all within a few minutes of each other. Making it easy to get around by foot! In fact you could go the whole weekend with using any public transport, but here at Maximise we think this is pretty unlikely, especially after a heavy night on the town! So here’s the low down on all the best ways to travel around Cardiff on your stag weekend. Okay so it’s not a limo, but you do have your own personal driver, kind of. Cardiff’s bus service, is quick, reliable and cheap, the routes in Cardiff are extensive and run every few minutes. You’ll never be too far from a taxi rank on your stag do. The taxis are all on a metre, and because Cardiff is a small city, taxi fares are very reasonably priced. If you looking for a different way to travel on your stag weekend then hop on board one of the pedal taxis and be transported around the city by some poor bloke on a push bike! Travelling around Cardiff by car is pretty straightforward, but as with any city congestion can occur at peak times, and parking, although plentiful, can be expensive in some areas.

Nightlife in Cardiff

The capital of Wales’ nightlife has expanded in recent years to accommodate the growing influx of party goers arriving daily to have a good time in this vibrant Welsh city. It's regularly voted one of the best drinking destinations in the UK. There's over 40 bars and pubs in and around St Mary Street alone. It's situated on the Westside of the city, and you'll find every type of bar imaginable with some great deals to be had. Another area in the west end that has some cracking nightlife is Mill Lane, which has a cosmopolitan feel to it. The newest addition is the Brewery quarter development, which practically does what it says on the tin! The East End is the second most popular nightlife area in Cardiff and has seen lots of new bars pop up in recent years. The best areas in the east end include Greyfriars Road and The Friary. The Millennium Stadium is at its busiest when the rugby or football is on, with people flocking to the area to bag the best drinking and viewing spots. With over 149 pubs, bars and clubs you can probably guess that Cardiff has a pretty impressive nightlife scene, so it’s not surprising that it is one of Maximise's top sellers.

Thank you soooo much for helping me organise a brilliant weekend for my best mate. Everything was so good. The Welsh country games was very funny and perfect for everyone in the group to take part in. The hotel and restaurants were just right. Thanks especially to Zoey at Maximise who put up with us before the weekend. Would definitely recommend Maximise.
