Latest Cardiff Museum parking reviews
Easy to find, all good. ThanksJerin
The owner responded quickly to my text message, giving us reassurance that everything was on track. We approached from a large roundabout, so had to stop to check where number 31 was on the stretch of houses off the dual carriageway: having the photo to hand would have helped but I forgot to print it/save it. The parking space is off road in front of the house. Reversing out of the space, it was helpful to have my passenger to assist. Despite being a main road, it wasn't too busy, just difficult to see clearly. It was a fab space for what we needed and enabled us to save a small fortune on hotel and city centre parking. We would use the space again.Sarah
