  • Good place. We had awarded with some VIP pass and it was really good. Nice view and tasty food
  • Fabulous iconic stadium with spacious grounds for parking. Really close to many shops and good places to eat.
  • A modern day stadium in a modern city. The stadium is sited on the outskirts of the city & away from major congestion. The stadium offers the finest fares & services. Not overpriced like many other similar places throughout the UK. There's ample parking for all types of vehicles. With a new modern shopping complex nearby, you'll want for nothing. The Asda superstore is within a stones throw of the stadium & it offers a 24hr service, including a petrol ⛽ station. The people of Cardiff are friendly & warming & you'll enjoy a great day out for all the family 👪 The stadium is sited close to all forms transport & the motorway & A roads are very close. Cardiff Airport is afew moles outside the city & transport is available to & fro. Bus services & railways are all easily accessible too & very close indeed. The Cardiff Sports Stadium is directly opposite. You'll be hard pressed to find better 😁
