Getting to the venue

Car

Follow the A470 towards the city centre and the University is sign-posted. There is limited car parking available at Cardiff University and due to expansion and improvements planned throughout the University estate, there will be further impact on the availability of car parking facilities in the future.

Two Park and Ride services operate in Cardiff – one from the East of the city (£3.00 per car) and one from the West of the city (£3.00 per person). See Map 2 for location. Car parking in the University car parks is extremely limited and a permit is required. However, there are several public car parks located close to the University, all of which are marked on Map 4. There is also pay and display car parking available on Park Place and within the civic centre (along College Road, City Hall Road, King Edward VII Avenue and Museum Avenue).

This typically costs around £3.50 for two hours. Payment is by coin or debit/ credit card. Parking in the North Road car park is £5.00 per day. (Charges for city centre multi-storey car parks vary considerably, up to £18.00 per day.)

Rail

The main School site (Tower Building) is located a 1-2 minute walk from Cathays rail station. If you prefer to walk to the School from Cardiff Central station, it takes 20-25 minutes – click here for a walking map from Tower Building to Cardiff Central.

Rail links from Cardiff to other major British cities are excellent. The Cardiff-London service, from London Paddington, runs at 30-minute intervals throughout the day. Frequent services also connect Cardiff with Bristol, Birmingham, Southampton, Manchester, Liverpool and with many other cities and towns. Visit the National Rail Journey Planner website for further information.

Bus

The No 95 service leaves Cardiff Central for the Cathays campus regularly throughout the day, and takes around 10 minutes. Local bus services also operate from Cardiff Central Station. Further details are available on the Cardiff Bus website.
