Access Information Guide for St David's Hall Customers
St David’s Hall, one of Cardiff’s leading performance venues is located in the city’s vibrant new shopping destination St David’s/Dewi Sant.
From 15th October, The Hayes and the surrounding area became a fully pedestrianised area; no vehicles are permitted access to the area from 10.00am to midnight, seven days a week. These changes along with the new seating, lighting and public art have created a streetscape that is visually enhanced creating a brighter and safer environment for those visiting, living and working in the city.
Cardiff Council has also ensured that the changes have been implemented to improve customer access facilities, allowing loyal patrons of the Hall to continue to enjoy visiting and using the venue.
