Stay in a Cardiff Apartment during Six Nations Rugby Championship

The RBS Six Nations Rugby Championship sits at the pinnacle of Country Rugby competitions in the Northern Hemisphere. The competition officially became known as the “Five Nations” in 1910, when France officially joined Wales, England, Scotland and Ireland. Much later this group of nations became Six with the addition of Italy. Traditionally matches have been passionate and fought with national pride at stake, with England having been the most successful of the Six Nations, having won the Grand Slam (winning all of their matches) a record Twelve times. The 2009 Championship was won by Ireland (that was also a Grand Slam year) with Wales, having lost two of their five games, trailing in a distant Fouth.

Wales, along with New Zealand, is probably the hottest of Rugby hot beds in the world. Rugby runs through Welsh veins. Traditionally Welsh sides were noted for their attacking panache, and this remains the case today.  Wales used to play their home Rugby matches at Cardiff Arms Park. They have since moved to the fantastic Millennium Stadium which sits proudly on the River Taffe in Cardiff City Centre. It is a fantastic place to watch Rugby during your stay in Cardiff.

This year the Six Nations runs from 6th February reaching it’s finale on 20th March. Wales will be desperate to perform better than they did in 2009 and will believe they have the team to do so. One thing to their advantage is that they play 3 of their 5 matches in Cardiff, on the following dates:

*Wales v Scotland on Saturday 13th February

*Wales v France on Friday 26th February

*Wales v Italy on Saturday 20th March

So if you are already planning your Cardiff visit, and are still to organise your accommodation in Cardiff, why not book a serviced apartment in Cardiff with Serviced City Pads? Our serviced apartments are clean, modern and spacious, and would make the pefect base for a weekend in Cardiff watching the Rugby. Cardiff is a great city to spend a weekend, being to small enough to walk around. If you are likely to be in Cardiff during the Six Nations Serviced City Pads would strongly recommend buying a ticket for a match at the Millennium Stadium. The experience of the roar is something you will never forget. On the flip side, if you are planning to visit Cardiff on any of the other weekends (not just for the Rugby) we also advise that you reserve you Cardiff serviced apartment sooner rather than later as accommodation in Cardiff can become scarce quite quickly (there are never enough hotels in Cardiff when Wales are playing Rugby), so book early with Serviced City Pads. Call us on 0844 335 8866 and one of the Reservations Team will be delighted to help. Alternatively, have a look at our website
