This week our gates open at 6:05pm, 1.5 hours before kick-off with the first hour ‘Happy Hour’ across all of our public bars.


As the iconic Cardiff Arms Park is in the heart of the Welsh capital, and right next to the Principality Stadium, there is no public parking available on site during match-days but we are well served by public transport.

We are located just a 10 minute walk from Cardiff Central train station and are on numerous major bus routes. The easiest way to find us is to spot the Principality Stadium and head towards it, from there, you can't miss us!

If driving, there are countless public car parks within walking distance including Sophia Gardens, where we have preferential rates, an NPC directly opposite the ground and at the St David’s 2 shopping centre. 

We also have safe storage facilities available for bicycles on both sides of the ground.

This Friday our gates open at 6:05pm, join us for ‘happy hour’ between 6:05pm and 7:05pm enjoy street food from Meating Point, Lekker Food Co and Bro Coffee.

The kids zone will be in full swing, along with FREE face painting, Côr y Gleision will be singing their hearts out in front of the clubhouse and player signings will be taking place from 6:40pm.


We've already covered food but with regards to bars, the North side of the ground is predominately served by the Black Bar and a Gin Bar. Those in the North can also enjoy the Clubhouse, if members of the Cardiff Athletic Club, the Guinness Bar and the Pack Bar, which is directly opposite.

Attendees in the South can also access these, however they also benefit from four further bars - the Fanzone, Jack Matthews Bar and Taff End Bar, which are all behind the South Terrace and a further unit in the South Stand Concourse.


While our main retail operation is now housed within the WRU Retail Store on Westgate Street, on match-days you can also attend a further club shop behind the Family Stand. There is currently a 40% off sale so make sure you do not miss out!
