Walking & Cycling
As a compact City, Cardiff will be a great place to walk around on the day of the match.
There will be volunteers (known as Champions) on the dedicated walking routes between key points across the City to help direct you to where you want to go. Also have a look at the spectator map showing all the event locations at the bottom of this page.
Remember, Saturday 3 June is anticipated to be extremely busy in the city centre, even when you are walking.
Cycling will be a great way to get around throughout the Event period. However, due to the number of people in the City, cycling will be very difficult on match day itself.
Cardiff Central Station is the City’s main station. There are also a number of local stations in and around the area including Cardiff Queen Street and Cardiff Bay Stations as well as services across the local South Wales area. Arriva Trains Wales operate most of the services in the local area and are a good source of information on getting about locally by train.
The motorways and roads to and from Cardiff in the build up to and during the Event will be busier than usual and you should allow extra time for your journey.If you are staying in the local area you are strongly advised to avoid driving and instead to use public transport, walk or cycle as appropriate.
If driving is the only option available to you please refer to the following detailed information on getting into the City by car depending on when you are travelling:
- Driving to the UEFA Champions Festival, 1-4 June
- Driving to the UEFA Champions League Final, Saturday 3 June
- Driving to the UEFA Women’s Champions League Final, Thursday 1 June
If you are driving on a non-Event day then please visit here for additional information on parking in the City.
As a small compact City one of the best ways to get around locally, particularly prior to the Event and on Thursday 1, Friday 2 and Sunday 4 June could be the local bus. The City has an extensive local bus network and is a great way to explore the areas outside the Central part of the City. Traveline.cymru is a great source of local bus information.
On Saturday 3 June the City Centre will be very busy with football fans and many roads are closed. As a result bus stops will have to move and some services will be disrupted. Please check before you travel.
The City of Cardiff Council is proud to ensure the Inclusion and Accessibility of all our residents and visitors to our great Capital City.
