Cardiff Central to Cardiff ground
 
 
As anyone walked to Cardiff's ground from Cardiff Central Station?

How long did it take?

Is it OK?

Takes about 25 min from the city centre to the stadium so is doable if you don't mind a bit of a walk. Some instructions below.

"If you a bit more time on your hands, then you can walk to the stadium from Cardiff Central, which takes around 25 minutes. As you come out of the entrance to the station, bear left and at the bottom of the station approach road, turn left. Continue straight on into Ninian Park Road, for around a mile passing the Millennium Stadium on your right. At the end of Ninian Park Road turn left and then left into Leckwith Road. You will then shortly be able to see the stadium over on your left (the away turnstiles are on the left hand side of the stadium, as you view it from here). Alternatively a taxi to the stadium from Cardiff Central costs around £7. Alternatively you can catch bus number 95 (going towards Barry) from the adjacent bus station next to Cardiff Central, up to the stadium. You can view a timetable on the Cardiff Bus website."

About a mile and a half away I think.

Or a 4 minute train to Ninian Park and then a short walk.

Yes is less than 25 minutes walk from the railway station. More like 15 mins walk I would say. Not much different to Middlesbrough station to the Riverside.

Cheers everyone those replies are helpful.

Just looked on Google Maps as well and it looks about 1.7km or just over 1 mile - 20 to 25 minutes sounds right. Doing a walk in the light I always find easier which it is in September.

I know if I take the car I can park in the Athletics stadium, but it will be £6 or £7?

You can park at the away end of the stadium.

Lots of free on street parking around the canton and pontcanna side streets (10 minute walk). Just donít park in the permit holders only marked sections.

Quicker getaway. Head towards the A48 and then M4.

£15 in petrol for me or £24 on train - I don't live on Teesside.

+ Don't forget the Speedway is on and that's right near the station, start time is 1700 there will probably be 50000+ people attending so that will affect traffic in town and getting around on foot even.

Think speedway event starts at 5pm, so majority of fans will be inside Millennium Stadium before Boro game ends.

It will affect getting from the station to the ground, before the match. The fan zone which is nearby also attracts many thousands of people who won't go to the Speedway that starts at 11am, the whole event is a big draw for many people.

About 20-25 minutes but there is train to Ninian Park and that will be quicker than walking from Central station tbh...
