Cardiff by numbers

Cardiff has grown in the last five years, with new venues, bars and restaurants giving delegates a range of options.

2000 years of Welsh history, giving delegates the opportunity to enjoy a conference in a castle, an event in an Edwardian civic building or a meeting in an historic open-air museum.  

2: The distance in hours by train from London to Cardiff, with trains leave London Paddington around every 30 minutes.   
547: the number of bars, cafes & restaurants. From fine dining to old favourites, delegates will be spoiled for choice.
900 seconds or 15 minutes. Cardiff is compact and delegates can walk across the city in a few minutes, from Cardiff City Stadium to the Millennium Stadium, making it an easy destination to get around.

8,413: the number of beds available across a range of 3,4 and 5 star hotels, as well as academic and budget accommodation.

74,500 seats in a single venue – that’s at the Millennium Stadium. Or for a more intimate meeting try the Clock Tower at Cardiff Castle.
