VISITING FOR A MAJOR EVENT?

Information for Drivers

Cardiff is proud to host many significants events throughout the year, including international sporting matches, live gigs and concerts, as well as festivals.

There’s many ways to travel to Cardiff whatever brings you to the city, but there’s a few things to be aware of to make sure you get the most out of your visit.

If you’re looking for parking you can pre-book, take a look at NCP’s Rapports (12 mins walking distance from Principality Stadium), Greyfriars (13 mins), Pellet Street (15 mins), Dumfries Place (17 mins) and Knox Road (19 mins). If you’re looking to turn up on the day, why not try St David’s Dewi Sant (10 mins). None of these car parks are affected by event day road closures.

If you’re looking for park & ride, road closures and other information, keep a look out for the specific travel advice blog piece, released the week of (or week before) a major event.
