Sat in the canteen whilst my son does his audition to come here... just listening to the buzz of the current students as they come and go, it really does strike me as a happy and creative place to be. Ohh and the coffee is pretty good to Fingers crossed

This is a jewel. This is an iconic venue for concerts, recitals and also a great place for jazz (free) on a friday evening. Definitely worth calling on for a coffee also!

I'm ashamed to say that despite being local to cardiff and someone who enjoys live performance, I'd never been to the royal welsh. Found their web site very easy to use, booked tickets for the Richard Burton Company's rendition of Nöel Coward's Hay Fever. Given good advice on parking, disabled parking spaces close to the venue, other public parking nearby... More

Prestigious yes, snobby no. A wonderful centre for learning, with teachers of excellence both technically, and with experience, however the best part is the integrity with which they teach these talented youngsters. No pushing, but great encouragement. The kids are happy and therefore naturally motivated and they are valued as people not just as instruments. The productions are of the... More

I had the great pleasure of attending a concert by Only Boys Aloud Academi at the Dora Stoutzker Hall at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. This is an excellent little concert hall which holds I think about 360 people. The sightlines are excellent and the acoustics superb. I definitely look forward to going there again.

Attended a friends wedding here - what a fantastic venue! There was over 130 guests & it seemed perfect, with a large bar area & outside decked space over looking the park to enjoy the rate bit of sunshine. The inside space was very modern & elegant & felt so airy. The food was gorgeous & staff & service all... More

A colleague recommended this place to me for lunch overlooking Bute Park otherwise I would never have thought to go in. Glad I did though - plenty of seating - although it gets very busy at lunch time and today there was a 1.15pm concert taking place so there was a lot of coming and going. However, plenty of seating... More
