Principality Stadium, Cardiff

4.6
Since opening in June 1999, the Stadium has welcomed, on average, over 1.3 million visitors per year. Sporting the first fully-retractable roof in the UK, the venue is at the leading edge as a multi-purpose, multi-faceted event venue.

The Stadium boasts a UEFA 5-Star rating and has hosted matches from two Rugby World Cups including the Final in 1999, witnessed two Wales Grand Slam successes in the RBS Six Nations, staged six showpiece FA Cup Finals plus hosted the major artists of the music business with a plethora of major concerts and motorsports events on its CV.

The installation of a partition drape system in July 2005 now means that the bowl of the Millennium Stadium can be used for multiple concert mode configurations and for staging exhibitions. Millennium Stadium will also play its part in the London 2012 Olympics as a host venue for the football competition.

The stadium renamed to Principality Stadium following a partnership with Principality Building Society on January 22nd 2016.

  • Following cancellation of rugby, managed to book tour for family who had flown in from Scotland. This was their first visit to Cardiff and we were all downhearted but thoroughly enjoyed the tour...  more »
  • Really only got within 100 yards so difficult to say too much. The stadium is very central - close to the main Central Railway Station and hotels, bars and restaurants. Exceptionally pleasant...  more »

  • It is been a great experience in this nice stadium. It is one of the bigger and more modern you can find at the moment in Europe. The only big queue is at the bar to buy drinks and food, I would recommend to drink at least some water before to get in so you don't miss a moment of the match. Located next the Cardiff Central train station which makes it very easy connected to the rest of Wales and England. I have been there for a friendly match between Manchester United and AC MILAN. I think the best experience here will be for a Six Nations game.
  • Went to see pink in concert here... Had the most amazing time. Didn't really queue that badly to get in but did arrive early to miss the crowds. Parking at any event is a huge problem so plan your parking in advance if you can.
