Cardiff Bay is a must see when you’re exploring Cardiff, especially at this time of year. Fleur Tucker, a PR Officer at the Wales Millennium Centre shares her personal experiences and tips on where to eat, relax and enjoy a range of entertainment.

Easily accessible from the City Centre via rapid and regular bus and train links, you can quickly escape from the bustle of town to the Bay’s scenic waterfront setting. With an abundance of restaurants, most with generous outdoor seating areas looking out across the water, it’s easily my favourite place for alfresco eating and drinking in Cardiff. I particularly enjoy visiting ice cream and coffee shop, Cadawaladers. Situated on its own little pier, the views across the Bay are spectacular, making it the perfect place to sit and enjoy a couple of scoops of ice cream from their vast selection.

With everything on the flat, it’s both easy and wonderfully relaxing to explore the waterfront via the many scenic footpaths – something I enjoy doing regularly on a sunny weekend afternoon.

No day out in Cardiff Bay would be complete, however, without a visit to Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff’s iconic performing arts centre. With its imposing facade and striking inscription, it’s sure to be the first thing to catch your eye as you arrive at the Bay. Just fourteen years old, this modern building is highly accessible for wheelchair users, with wide concourses, lifts to all levels and fully accessible toilets on both sides of the auditorium and on every level.

This year, the Centre’s shows that have taken to the main stage over the past few months are some of the finest currently on-tour in the UK, such as Shrek the musical, Jimmy Carr, Sunset Boulevard and Beauty and the Beast in Concert.

The Centre’s award-winning restaurant and bar, ‘ffresh’, serves some of the best local produce and is another of my favourite places to eat and drink in the Bay to sample a true taste of Wales. I especially enjoy relaxing in the bar on a Friday evening and listening to the live performances. Wales Millennium Centre also offers an activity space for children to learn more about and get inspired by the world of theatre.

The Bay is home to some great attractions such as Techniquest, The UK’s longest established Science Centre with 120 interactive science exhibits, The Doctor Who Experience and the World of Boats, featuring over 40 boats from around the world as well as live restoration projects and interactive displays.

Disabled parking

Walking distances

To help you decide whether you need assistance at Cardiff, here are a few of the main areas along with their distances and approximate walking times.

Long Stay Car Park 1 to Main Terminal = 332.99m (Call Point 4) (5min)

Long Stay Car Park 2 to Main Terminal = 174.13 (Call Point 3) (3min)

Short Stay Car Park to Main Terminal = 85.59 (Call Point 2) (1-2min)

There are plenty of help/call points for passengers with reduced mobility inside the car parks and outside the main terminal. Assistance for passengers with special needs is complimentary.

All Cardiff’s car parking facilities are fully compliant with the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA).

Disabled Parking Spaces

Disabled parking at Cardiff can be easily found with accessible routes into the terminal clearly signposted.

These are located in all the car parks, located near a special assistance shelter and are easily accessible. An intercom call point system is linked directly to the assistance desk for your convenience which you will find in the special assistance shelters.

We have 120 bays in total but if for any reason these are full then contact the car park team via one of the many intercoms located at the entrance/exit barriers. They will then assist to find a suitable parking bay for you.

We also offer a mini bus collection service for each of the car parks which can be pre-booked or requested on arrival by contacting the special assistance desk. You can do this by contacting the desk on 01446 729329 or via one the call points located in each of the assistance shelters. The mini bus is designed to allow for wheelchair or scooter access. This service is also available for when you return.

If you need assistance throughout your journey we recommend that you pre-book with your airline or travel agent at least 48 hours in advance. But if you haven’t done this, we’ll do our very best to help – just go to a help point with your flight details to hand.

A shuttle bus service is available for passengers which is fully operational around flight times. The bus stops directly outside the main terminal entrance.

Do I have to pay for Disabled parking?

In most of our car parks, Blue Badge Holders are required to pay the standard charges as advertised in the car park. However, in many car parks, there will be designated spaces reserved for Blue Badge holders only. Where possible, these are at convenient access points to and from the car park e.g. near the lifts or pedestrian entrances.

Please ensure your badge is clearly displayed on your dashboard at all times when parked.

Some car parks we operate provide free parking for Blue Badge Holders, but please read the following conditions:

  • London Underground Station car parks

Parking is free for Blue Badge holders but only when using a disabled bay. If the disabled bays are full and you park in a regular bay, the regular tariff and rules applies. If you’re parking in a disabled bay at one of the London Underground station car parks that operate an Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system, you must ensure that you go to the payment machine and register your vehicle under the Blue Badge option by following the instructions on the machine.

  • Greater Anglia and C2C station car parks

Parking is also free for Blue Badge Holders at any of our Greater Anglia (GA) or C2C Station car parks. Please register your disabled badge here. If you’re unable to find a vacant disabled bay, you can park in any of the standard bays within the car park.
