Principality Stadium seating plan:
The location of the Millennium Stadium, in the centre of Cardiff, means that there are plenty of pubs and bars from which to choose. There are reportedly 70+ outlets within a ¼ mile radius of the ground. At the South end of the stadium, St. Mary's Street offers a range of good pubs.
Those which have received particularly good reviews are the Prince of Wales (a former theatre), the Albert, adjacent to the Brains brewery, and the Cottage. These are all very busy on match days and early arrival is advised.
Parking is limited in the streets around the ground and you'll be hard pushed to find a space within 10 minutes walk. On a busy match day you can park as far as 20 minutes away. However, there are plenty of 'football' car parks scattered around generally charging between £5 and £8 for the duration. The earlier you arrive, the better the parking space.
