Wales Millennium Centre / Canolfan Mileniwm Cymru

The Wales Millennium Centre is a fixture of Cardiff's spectacular regeneration of the Cardiff Bay area, and has already reached iconic status in popular culture thanks to its multiple appearances in Cardiff-shot BBC TV shows such as Doctor Who and Torchwood. After a long struggle for funding, Zaha Hadid's impressive building opened its bilingual facade in 2004 and phase 2 was completed in 2009 with the opening of the BBC Hoddinott Hall.

The Centre has multiple performance spaces, bars, coffee shops and the highly-rated (by the Guardian) ffresh restaurant. It also hosts the offices of numerous Welsh cultural organisations.

Cardiffbus routes 7 and 8 stop near the centre, and the Cardiff Baycar route 6 runs a shuttle service from Cardiff Central railway station, which takes eight minutes each way. Alternatively, Cardiff Bay station is five minutes' walk away (follow Lloyd George Ave and the station is on the Bute St side of the intersection). There is ample parking in Pierhead St car park, directly adjacent to the Centre.
