  • The parking is really good and one of the cheapest car parks close to the city centre. It's a lovely area to walk through, have a picnic, or just relax. There's quick and easy access to the castle and the city centre, as well as a boat ride to Cardiff Bay.
  • Older multi use sports facility fir the Welshman National Teams. Very conveniently located in Cardiff. Large sports hall with a little seating ( maybe 500-600?) on site accommodation, weight rooms, cafeteria, other training rooms. Again ,it is not new or “ state of the art”, if in fact opposite, but well layed out, ample for pure training space and equipment. Staff friendly and good parking.
