Our conference venues include up to 10 break-out rooms with audio-visual facilities including eight state-of-the-art large studios. Two further rooms are housed within our historic Anthony Hopkins Centre (the original Cardiff Castle stables building) which also has a stunning open-air courtyard. A very impressive tree-lined avenue provides the entrance for delegates and guests to the Anthony Hopkins Centre with Cardiff Castle in view.

Our professional in-house technical team can provide specialist audio-visual, lighting, sound, film and audio recording services.

Our beautiful park location within a short walk from the centre of the capital city of Cardiff creates a unique offering for conference delegates and guests. As well as magnificent shopping centres, Victorian arcades, historic theatres, contemporary cinemas, museums and a dramatic waterfront, Cardiff hosts the full range of overnight accommodation options – from luxury hotels to independently-run boutique guest houses to budget providers.
