    The tour gives a behind the scenes look at the stadium. Steve not only told us about the rugby but also what happens when rock/ pop groups perform at the stadium. Where the VIPs sit, the changing rooms, the media centre. I’m not a rugby fan but that did not matter as it was so I interesting.

    Always incredibly impressed with this venue. So well organised, clean and maintained to a high standard. Visited this time to watch we will rock you after a 2 year wait and a couple of postponements. Enjoyed the show and found the entry process, the purchase of drinks during the interval and access and egress painless. Highly recommend!

    This is a great place to take some young inquisitive minds. It has really good activities for the kids to do and learn from

    Great architecture, thousands of years old.
    And if the choir is practising, you are treated to a wee bit of heaven. I'm not religious but I can confirm that it is a stunning visit.

    Easy to book online and then collect tickets from the box office.
    Comfortable seats….my only ‘niggle’ was that if you sit in the stalls and have a tall person in front of you, it’s quite difficult to see the stage without constantly moving your head.
    Good variety of snacks & drinks served during the interval, especially the Marshfield ice cream.

    A pain as about 2km from city centre. Was a good view for game. The Cardiif stewards were quite aggressive and determined to upset the away fans! The bar area was good and a nice steak pie

    Came here to watch the interrupters. The sound was brilliant. Staff were great and the building was fit for purpose. Only complaint was the price of drinks, two largers for £9. But I guess they can get away with it when they have such amazing bands playing here.

    If you love a traditional market, you’ll love wandering around here. Great produce, (meat, fish, fruit and veg, cheese, baked goods), with friendly stall holders and places to eat. Make sure to buy some delicious Welsh cakes from the Welsh Bakestones stall.

    Jo Bonamassa was amazing to see, and we had a good view (block 5) ...... but ....... considering what we paid for the ticket, very disappointed in the Cardiff Motorpoint Arena. Cramped seats, echoey sound (even in the most expensive seats), grubby sticky floors, herded like cattle to ridiculously overpriced bars. The addition of a support band might at least have made it better value for money.

    The red brick Pierhead Building is such a contrast with the more modern Cardiff Bay.

    In one sense it is a meeting of new and old Cardiff Bay.
