Pontcanna is Canton's next door neighbour, and slightly closer to the city centre. It is the closest thing that Cardiff has to a north London suburb. It has everything you'd expect; coffee shops, restaurants, organic food shops and beauticians. It is a popular stomping ground for media types! 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 with a slightly higher price tag to match.
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.
