How to get to the park

Bute Park is very accessible by public transport.

Bute Park is within walking distance from Cardiff city centre and is easily accessible from a number of entrances.


Our location in the city centre and the nature of our site means vehicle access is restricted to operational vehicles only. However, there are several public parking facilities within a short distance.

Pay and display car parking facilities are available nearby in Sophia Gardens (CF11 9LJ), Castle Mews (CF10 3ER) and North Road (CF10 3EA).
