Surrounded by the Welsh capital's finest buildings, including the National Museum, Alexandra Gardens and more, Cardiff City Hall is an elegant venue in one of the finest civic centres in Europe. Its choice of magnificent rooms combined with landscaped gardens offer a picturesque backdrop for your day. There are three impressive and very different rooms for you to choose to reflect your style.

The hall's gardens are extensive and include the stunning fountain and pool at the hall's front. The catering is provided by Cardiff Catering, whose chefs create menus that reflect the hall's character. This unique, centrally-located venue can accommodate up to 600 guests.


The design of the building was inspired by English and French renaissance architecture but still has elements of Edwardian style. The hall that stands today was opened in 1906 and is the fifth city hall in Cardiff, to serve local government.

The clock tower is the most distinctive architectural feature of the building. At 194 feet, it is surmounted by a Welsh dragon.
