Please be aware that thousands will be looking to arrive at the same time as you, and road closures will be in operation so please allow plenty of time for traveling and parking.


Cardiff Bay is easily accessible by foot, bike or public transport. It’s a 20-minute walk from the city centre and is served by regular buses and trains (via Cardiff Queen Street Station).

A number of trains will be leaving Queen Street for Cardiff Bay on race day morning. Please see the times below.

08:51 – 09:04, 09:05 – 09:16, 09:41 – 09:52, 09:48 – 10:04, 10:01 – 10:16, 10:06 – 10:28, 10:29 – 10:40.

Please check the national rail website in case of cancellations, strike action or engineering works as availability can be subject to change.

Visit, or for more information on public transport options.

For those arriving by bike, there will be a free bike park available at the top of Roald Dahl Plass outside the Wales Millennium Centre, opposite the water tower.


There are very limited parking options in Cardiff Bay because of the road closures in place for the event, so car sharing is encouraged, and we recommend parking in the city centre (which is a short 1-mile walk or warm up jog from the Bay).

You can find more information on city-centre parking options here.
