Making Your Visit Easier

Getting here
Due to our busy city centre location, audiences should leave plenty of time to travel to the venue. If travelling by train visit the National Rail Enquiries website. RWCMD is just a 20 minute walk from Cardiff Central Station, 15 minutes from Cardiff Queen Street and 5 minutes from Cathays Station.

If travelling by bus, the regional bus services (Cardiff Bus 21, 23, 25 and 27) regularly pass the front door of the College as do a range of services on the Stagecoach and National Express network. Visit the Cardiff Bus website for further details.

If travelling by road, please do check ahead for any travel advice that might affect your journey into Cardiff city centre.

Parking and drop off points
There is a drop-off point directly outside the front entrance to the building, which provides level access to our main foyer, where the Box Office and most theatre entrances are located.

There is also a limited number of disabled parking spaces, which are available to blue badge holders only. This includes 3 to 4 spaces directly outside the main entrance, as well as 3 additional spaces at the Anthony Hopkins Centre, which is located just a short 2 minute walk from the main entrance, along a level route.

For general parking, there are large pay-and-display car parks either side of the College and parking is available throughout the Civic Centre, opposite the College's main entrance on North Road.

Food and drink
We do not allow drinks or food in any of our venues, but at most events interval drinks can be ordered beforehand to save time if required.

Please bear in mind that our foyer and café is a large, open space and therefore can sometimes be busy and noisy, especially at meal times or just before shows start.

Dress code
There is no dress code at RWCMD shows, so please wear what you feel comfortable in. You may find that at some events people enjoy dressing up, but it is not a requirement. For performances aimed at a family audience we welcome children to come along in fancy dress, speak to the Box Office for further information.

We open our cloakroom for specific performances only, however we can take coats, bags and luggage into the cloakroom upon request. Just ask at the Welcome Desk and we'll be happy to assist.

We can also accommodate folded buggies in the cloakroom, ask an RWCMD staff member to help. On certain family performances we may offer a buggy park, signage will be available to guide you.

During some performances latecomers may not be admitted, or, you may be asked to wait for a suitable break in the performance before taking your seats (this will be at the Duty Manager's discretion). Please speak to the Box Office on 029 2039 1391 if you require any further information.
