The stadium is situated off Sophia Close.
If travelling from the West then exit the M4 at juntion 33. Follow the A4232 for 6.2 miles and exit via the slip road onto Leckwith Road (B4267). Turn right on to the A4161 and follow until you turn left onto Cathedral Road (A4119). Turn right onto Sophia Close where the Stadium is situated.

The closest rail station to the Cardiff Wales Stadium is Cardiff Central. There are high speed services available from all major UK cities, including London, Bristol, Birmingham and Swansea. Travel time from London Paddington to Cardiff Central will be approximately two hours and twenty minutes for most services.
From Cardiff Central, the remainder of the journey can be made by taxi, bus, cycle or on foot.
Travel to the stadium by bicycle is a popular choice due to the Taff Trail which runs from Cardiff Bay to Brecon. The Stadium has more than 30 cycle parking spaces located underneath the Altodigital stand. Copies of the Cardiff cycle map are available by contacting email@example.com
Alternatively, you could take advantage of Next Bike, Cardiff’s popular and innovative bike share scheme. Pick up a bike from one of the city centre locations and ride to the drop off point at Coach Station – Sophia Close.
It’s a lovely and rather picturesque walk to the Cardiff Wales Stadium, Welsh weather permitting of course. Much of the city centre is pedestrianised and the final leg takes you along the beautiful Taff Trail.
If you’re walking from Cardiff Central then the journey should take you a little less than 20 minutes. From the front entrance to the station, bear left on to Wood Street and cross the river Taff. Turn right and follow the river along Fitzhamon Embankment until you reach Castle Street, cross the road and enter the park directly in front of you. Continue along the Taff Trail path, passing the car park and then the bowling club on your left. Take the next path to the left, off the trail and past the Sport Wales National Centre to arrive at the stadium.
