Travelling around Cardiff

The Saturday social will be at Cardiff Bay, which is a 20 minute drive from training. 

If you are staying in the centre, it’s easy to walk to the bay, but you might want to organise a lift to training or get a taxi. Taxis are affordable because Cardiff is a small city and you’re never travelling far. 

The bus timetable can be a bit difficult to work out, but there are regular buses going to Heath hospital from most parts of the city.

Taxi numbers:

Dragon Taxi – 02920 333 333

Premier – 02920 555 555


We suggest that you stay in Cardiff Bay (near the social), or in the centre.

The bay is a 20 minutes drive from training.
