Getting to Cardiff City Stadium

Cardiff City Stadium sits to the west of the city centre in the suburb of Leckwith, adjacent to the Capital Retail Park. The stadium is easy to get to from both Cardiff city centre and the M4.

If you're travelling to the stadium by car, access from the M4 is easy. Leave the motorway at junction 33 and take the A4232 towards Cardiff/Barry. Exit the A4232 on to the B4267 turn-off, signposted towards Cardiff City Stadium.

Follow the slip-road off the B4267 and take the first left at the roundabout - the Stadium will be on your right hand side. Turn right at the second set of traffic lights and follow the appropriate signage for your dedicated parking space. Please note parking at the stadium is limited with spaces predominantly designated to Season Ticket Holders, with the remaining spaces allocated on a first come first served basis.

If you are travelling to the stadium from Cardiff City Centre, there are both bus stops and train stations nearby. Grangetown is the nearest train station for the stadium and is approximately 5-10 minutes walk away. You can get to Grangetown station by taking a connecting train from Cardiff Central.

Alternatively, Cardiff Bus runs a regular service from the city centre, which stops outside the stadium. The 95 route, which goes to Barry, runs every 20 minutes during the day and hourly in the evenings (Monday - Saturday). Find out more about bus fares and timetables here.
