Getting there

On Foot
The most popular and pleasant means of reaching Sophia Gardens from Cardiff Central Station is on foot. The final part of the 15 minute leisurely stroll takes you along the banks of the River Taff through Bute Park and the grounds of Cardiff Castle.

A popular way to travel to the Stadium is by bicycle and we are in the ideal location to do so i.e. via 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
