a left out of the station - Left again at Wood Street which will
take you over a bridge across the Taff, (you will see the Millennium
stadium on the right hand side - the home of our national egg
chasing team) take another Left off the the road and onto the
the railway bridge (beware low flying cyclists with bells that
demand you dive for cover if rung - just ignore!). The River Taff
is now on your left and you are on Taff Mead Embankment -
Take the second right into Merches Gardens, you will see the 'Grangetown
Taj Mahal!' a Hindu temple at the end of the road - and there
is a grassed 'central reservation' proceed to the end of the road
so that you pass the temple on the right. Cross the main road
(Clare Road) and you will be at the start of Cornwall street.
The Neville Pub has now closed which makes no difference to you
as a visitor as I wouldn't have recommended you stopping in there
Proceed all the way to the end of Cornwall Street (3/4 of a mile(ish)
). Half way down on the right is the Cornwall pub where you may
fancy some "refreshment" you will be able to mix safely
with the locals in this pub - most of whom will also be going
to the game. Proceed to the end of Cornwall Street - if you've
lost your sense of direction 'hic!' due to a prolonged pit stop!!
then by now the main flow of traffic will be towards the ground
and that's to the right (unless you're an Accrington Stanley fan
and the Bluebirds have slipped down a league or three since typing
this!!, in which case it'll just be me walking
down the road - but then I'll probably be in the pub anyway!!)
Cross the road at the end of Cornwall St and take a right up Sloper
Road, proceed up the road and the visitors entrance is on the
left just past the burger van! A warm welcome awaits you in the
stadium - with bar staff in your teams colours - have a great
day, enjoy the match - enjoy Cardiff! have a safe journey home,
but please DO NOT take any points back with you!!
The route is shown on the map above as a purple dotted line

You may observe on travelling to the game and in the stadium that
almost all the home fans are wearing Blue shirts, hats, scarves
to show support for Cardiff City, this is because the re-branding
of Cardiff City to red is massively unpopular amongst the vast
majority of Bluebird fans - and one day we hope the team will
return to it's true colour and identity, until then many of us
are in complete denial of the whim that has turned it's back on
our historical identity - afterall... We're
Cardiff City We'll always be Blue!!
Questions that thecardiffcitystadium.co.uk map answers...
How far is the Cardiff City Stadium from Cardiff central railway
station and Cardiff central bus station.
fraction under 1.5 miles if you use our suggested pedestrian
route shown on the map - this walk should take approximately
20 minutes at a leisurely pace
Q. How far is the Cardiff City Stadium from Cardiff
much the same reply as above ie. a fraction under 1.5 miles
if you use our suggested pedestrian route shown on the map
- this walk should take approximately 20 minutes at a leisurely
Q. Are Pubs in the town centre and in Canton freindly
for away visitors. (with the exception of bubble trips from
the good old? or rather very much the bad old days, as with
plenty of other clubs the answer was no! however as that closet
Bluebird fan (Bob the Bluebird) once sang...
Times they are a changing, and common sense prevails.
As a local I am not aware of any pub that is known as a no
go area, however if you turn up in large numbers and very
vocal, well perhaps you are going to attract like minded local
fans - and the mixture of alcohol fuelled 'banter' could get
out of hand. So, do the opposite and you'll probably
end up sharing notes on how tough it is to support your particular
team and sharing a laugh, a joke and a pint with Bluebird
fans. However if in the city centre or Canton a pub feels
awkward in any way then you've got many other options to choose
from, about 30ish less than 25mins walk to ground - so take
your custom somewhere else that deserves it!!
What's the away fan experience at the Cardiff City stadium
a lifelong home fan I can't comment from personal experience,
however by all accounts the answer is.. Very Good!... your
clubs posters, videos, staff wearing your clubs colours, food
from your neck of the woods!!! checkout this link
--- I'm not being funny but the home fans don't get
treated as well as that!!
Why are most Cardiff City fans wearing blue when the team
play in Red?
got a clue!! - it makes zero sense to the vast majority of
us? but myself and very many like minded Bluebirds will carry
on wearing blue until we return to our rightful colour!!
