Cardiff: Aberdare Hall

I’ve often admired this beautiful 1893-built Gothic-revival Grade II-listed building en route to, or on my way home from, a walk in Bute Park but I didn’t realise until today that it’s actually a female-only Hall of Residence for 132 students of Cardiff University

Ah, but how times have changed since I was at university: the university website advises aspiring residents that ‘although Aberdare Hall is a female-only hall of residence, male visitors are permitted to visit and stay overnight’! In my day, there was more sneakery involved! You can find out more about the building here.
