Cardiff the slow city

I live in Cardiff, which I think is a great city – it’s the right size, it’s got a strong identity, it’s got good facilities, we have some great coastline nearby and the wonderful Brecon beacons behind us. It now turns out that it is also Britain’s most laid back city. Some recent research has measured the pace at which people walk, which has increased by 10% over the past decade or so, but Cardiff came out as having the slowest walking pace. That’s because we’re not in a rush, we’re enjoying ourselves. And it was also found to be a fairly honest city in a not very scientific study. But why am I telling you this? I don’t want all you rushy types coming here and speeding it up…
