Travel and location advice

Train disruption: Engineering work is taking place between Bristol and Cardiff on 18 November so members should check the National Rail website to see how it will affect their journey to Cardiff.

Those  arriving at Cardiff Central station have 3 options to get down to the Pier Head building at Cardiff Bay, they can:

  1. catch the train from Cardiff Central to Cardiff Queen Street and then change to the Cardiff Bay shuttle train (every 12 minutes) from  platform one at Queen Street station.
  2. catch a number 6  bus to  Cardiff bay, To do this  turn right out of main entrance of  Cardiff Central and then first right  before the Clayton Hotel.  The  bus stop is just beyond railway bridge (every 12 minutes)
  3. walk down to the Bay, it is just over one mile and the best way is along Lloyd George Avenue.

For people coming by car, follow signs to Cardiff Bay,   plenty of charged  parking all around the area.

There is also an International Rugby match  taking place  between Wales and Georgia, start time 14.30. Although this is not a major international, it will have some impact on roads in the centre of Cardiff and may disrupt some bus routes in the centre.
