Heath is located a little bit further out of the city centre than Roath and Cathays and is quieter. The area is mainly populated by third-years, postgraduates and families.
Heath, which is close to the Heath Park Campus, is especially good for those doing medicine-based/healthcare courses due to its close proximity to the Heath Park campus and the University Hospital of Wales.
Compared to Cathays, Heath is a quiet area and although there is an increasing number of students, many of the houses are also privately owned.
Heath has a Co-op, a Doctor’s
Surgery, several pharmacies and small shops of all types. Maindy Pool and
Talybont Sports Centre are also close by offering swimming and gym facilities,
a running track and various fitness classes. For the outdoor types, Heath Park offers lots of space for running, outdoor sports and
also a mini golf course!
The Heath pub on the corner of Whitchurch and Allensbank Roads is a regular haunt for medical and dental students. Whitchuch Road hosts a number of restaurants and cafes and the close proximity to Cathays and Roath provides you with even more choice just a short walk away!
