By Car

Principality Stadium is located just 15 minutes from the M4 – simply take junction 28 of the M4 onto the A48. (signs for Cardiff (E)/Cardiff (S)/Caerdydd(Dn)/Caerdydd (D).

There’s plenty of parking options in the city centre, but there is no dedicated spectator car parking at or immediately near the stadium, so be sure to plan your journey in advance.

Please note that for Stadium concerts and events, road closures will be in place – please check your specific event information for further details.

By Train

The nearest train station to the Principality Stadium is Cardiff Central, which operates mainline services from West Wales, the Midlands, the South Coast and London. Upon arriving into the station, the ground is a five-minute walk away.

Please note: there’s a normally a queuing system in operation at Cardiff Central Station after stadium events, so it is best to check the Transport for Wales website before travelling for further information.

When arriving from Cardiff Central station passengers should bear left along Wood Street for Gates 5, 6 and 7 or bear right along Wood Street to Westgate Street for Gates 4, 3, 2 continuing around to Gate 1 on Castle Street.

Another option is, Cardiff Queen Street Station which is around a 15-minute walk to get to the stadium and offers local rail services across Cardiff and from the South Wales Valleys.

By Bus

During stadium events, including rugby matches and concerts, roads around the stadium close and different city centre bus stops are used. Visit Principality Stadium Events – Cardiff Bus for more information.

Can you cycle or walk?

Those who live locally in Cardiff may want to travel by bicycle or walk. Research shows us that 52% of car trips made in the Welsh capital are less than 5km. This is a distance that can be comfortably cycled in 20 minutes.

We also know that 28% of Cardiff residents who currently do not cycle would like to do so.
When the roads are congested this makes cycling an even more attractive option as travel by bicycle would be quicker than a car during rush hours or during big events.

Shopping Parking

City centre car parks are also available: North Road Car Parks, St David’s Shopping Centre, John Lewis, Capitol Shopping Centre, and NCP (Adam Street, Dumfries Place and Greyfriars Road.)

Disabled parking

Disabled drivers are advised to use Sophia Gardens. Disabled parking is also available at various private car parks.
Please check individual websites for availability.


A taxi rank can be found on St Mary Street (outside the House of Fraser building).
