How to find us

We are in the city centre of Cardiff, in Castle Arcade, opposite Cardiff Castle. It is very easily accessible and there are many car parks in the area.

Our postcode is for the arcade itself and as it is pedestrian, your sat-nav will not recognise it. However, if you type “CF10 1BS”, you will get to Duke street and from there you can turn left into Westgate Street and then left again into Quay Street, and park in the NCP car park.

Once you leave the NCP car park, take right into Quay Street towards the High Street and turn left so as to face the Castle. You will come across the entrance of Castle Arcade on your left hand-side.

If you have parked in other car parks, you might be approaching Castle Arcade from the Duke Street entrance.

There is a stair-case next to each of the bridges inside the arcade. Please go up. Sorry, due to the building being historical, there is no lift. But if you are coming with a wheelchair or pram, please call us on 029 20 22 77 61 to ask for assistance. One of us will be happy to help you with them. We are in the right angle of the arcade.

You have arrived at Cardiff Violins!
