Forthcoming events at the Millennium Stadium and other venues in Cardiff.
If you are travelling to the Millennium Stadium for an event by train the following information will help make your journey safe and straightforward.
Cardiff Central Railway Station is just 400 yards from the Millennium Stadium, opposite Cardiff Bus Station.
On major event days Cardiff Central Station will be extremely busy and for passengers safety and security a queuing system may be in operation at the station after the event.
Passengers who are attending an event are advised to allow plenty of time to travel, and where possible, to arrive early in Cardiff and soak up the atmosphere. After the event, passengers are advised to return to Cardiff Central Station as soon as the event has finished.
Where a queuing system is in place passengers may have to queue for up to 2 hours depending on the size of the event. Queue plans will be available on this page close to the start of each event.
Buy your Train Tickets before you travel
Cardiff Central Railway Station operates revenue protection ticket barriers and customers are advised to purchase their return tickets to avoid further delays when returning to the station and it is usually cheaper than purchasing two single tickets. All passengers must have a correct ticket for the journey they are taking and it is their responsibility to have one. Read our
Revenue Enforcement Policy here.
The safety of our passengers is paramount. Barrier systems in place within the station perimeter are installed for crowd control and passenger safety.
