NEIGHBOURHOOD AFFAIRS: Where in Wales do the cheaters prosper?
Hanky panky in Hay, liaisons dangereuses in Llandudno, and playing away in Penylan
Well known for its community spirit and traditional values, Wales is set for a new reputation as the infidelity capital of the UK. Plush suburb Lisvane has been named as the infidelity hotspot of Wales, with the sleepy backwaters of Hay-on-Wye, Mumbles and Cowbridge making it into the top ten list of neighbourhoods where adultery is most common.
New research from the notorious married dating website, AshleyMadison.com, reveals Wales’s most cheat-friendly neighbourhoods based on a national membership of more than 37,000 members.
According to new data regarding Welsh membership per capita, Lisvane in Cardiff is home to the most affair seekers in Wales, with Yuppie dominated Cardiff Bay and family-orientated Bangor not far behind. Below is the full list of the nation’s naughtiest neighbourhoods.

AshleyMadison.com founder and CEO Noel Biderman said, “As parts of Wales are remote and located in some distance from the bigger cities, it may come as a surprise to many that infidelity is as prolific in rural towns and villages as it is in the suburbs and centre of Cardiff. Our membership figures illustrate that adultery is common to most countries across the world, and Wales reflects this model.
“Our statistics confirm that people across Wales seek the same fun outside of their tired, sexless relationships, and that even the sleepiest of villages harbour cheaters with the need for greater fulfilment. Lisvane has by far the highest per capita membership of AshleyMadison.com in Wales, proving that no one ever knows what goes on behind the closed doors of the suburbs.”
The affair service also found additional demographic data for some of the top neighbourhoods:
- Bangor has the most female members (36% compared to 30% on average)
- Mumbles boasts the most single women on AshleyMadison.com
- Members in family-friendly Penylan, Cardiff have the most children on average
