How to get there from Cardiff Central Train Station

The number 50 bus is the best option. The bus station is right next to Cardiff Central Station.

If you check out: Go into the journey planner and put in 'Cardiff central station' as your departure, and CF3 4JN as your destination (Mendip Road, Cardiff) this gives you a journey time of roughly 27 minutes (including the short walk at the end). The number 49 also goes fairly close but you'll need to check the map on the traveline-cymru website.

A taxi will set you back in the region of 15 (don't quote me on that).

Llanrumney isn't the poshest part of town, so usual cautions about wandering round there at night apply (we've never had any problems like that, but you never know).
