Despite the challenging weather of the last few weeks, Spring is approaching.

We’re certain we’re not in the minority when we say we are looking forward to longer days and a change in the seasons.

Luckily there’s plenty going on in Swansea and Cardiff this Spring to keep us all entertained.

Whether it be days to entertain the little ones over the Easter Holidays or alternative fundraising events there's certainly something for everyone.

Staying fit while travelling away for business can be difficult.

Schedules can be tight and sometimes the last thing you want to do after a busy day at work is head down to the gym.

It’s not however impossible and with the help of a few guidelines staying healthy while away can become second nature.

Pack for fitness

The first step is ensuring you pack all your essential fitness gear. While it increases your luggage it eliminates that initial excuse.

The end of the year is approaching and we are - albeit in a rather cliché way – taking a moment to reflect on 2016.

For many 2016 has been a year of change with huge economic and political shake-ups happening across the world, leaving us to question what will happen next.

Here at A Space in the City we are no different. Change has been a prominent feature of 2016 with a focus on growth within the serviced apartment sector.


With both Cardiff and Swansea’s Christmas lights being switched-on last week it’s clear that the Christmas countdown has begun.

Wales’ biggest cities are getting into the festive spirit and there’s plenty to get involved no matter what age.

Last year Cardiff was rated one of the top cities in the UK where people enjoy visiting a Christmas market and the capital's Yuletide shopping bonanza is nothing less than spectacular.

Like all worldwide news stories, the first question on many business owner’s lips is… will this affect my business sector?

Saturated in controversy the US election has been a trending topic for many months. With Donald Trump’s recent (and some may say surprising) win we ask how this will affect the UK and in particular it’s tourism.

Despite the election occurring across the pond Britain will obviously experience some of the repercussions of the vote.

Travelling alone is a great chance to experience new surroundings and cultures.

However, travelling alone for the very first time can be a rather intimidating experience as it has its perils as well.

Our tips for the solo traveller ensure that you are prepared for the trip, avoid any unnecessary mishaps and ultimately enjoy your time away.

Serviced apartments are, without a doubt, on the rise.

The Global Serviced Apartments Industry Report 2016/17 details this growth and discusses whether past and present challenges have helped or hindered the progress.

Serviced apartments source a lot of business from corporate stays. In recent years, the corporate hospitality sector has experienced some significant changes to the way it works.

In recent years’ demand for serviced apartments has soared according to Knight Frank’s 2016 Global Cities Report.

The report states that over the past seven years the serviced apartments industry has grown by 80 per cent with more than 750,000 properties worldwide and the trend is set to continue.

Savills 2015 serviced apartments report noted an increase in the number of international visitors.
