As both our road and postcode are new, they do not always appear correctly on sat-nav systems or online maps. However, if you use the postcode CF11 8AB, this should get you to the end of Clos Parc Morgannwg.
A handy landmark is the new Cardiff City Stadium – if you can see that, you can’t be far away as we’re right next door. We’re also adjacent to the Capital Retail Park, although there is only access between our site and the shops when Glamorgan Archives is open.

Travelling by Train
From Cardiff Central catch the train either to Grangetown or Ninian Park stations. Grangetown is on the Penarth line and Ninian Park is on the City Link in the direction of Radyr. Trains to Radyr leave every half hour, trains to Grangetown leave every 8-10 minutes.
If you are travelling in from the North of Cardiff you can alight at Radyr and take any train heading for Coryton on the City Link, which will travel through Ninian Park on the way to Cardiff Central. Trains on the City Link run approximately every half an hour.
Travelling by Bus
From behind Cardiff Central Library you can catch the service Number 1 or 2. These are city circle bus routes and you should try to catch the Number 1 to travel to the office and the number 2 to get back. Both these services stop at the closest bus stop to the Archives, and run twice an hour. Alternatively service numbers 92, 93, 94 and 95 all stop at the ends of Sloper Road and are no more than a 10 minute walk from the Glamorgan Archives.
Travelling by Car
If coming from Cardiff city centre, follow the A4161 along Castle Street and then onto Cowbridge Road East. Continue onto Wellington Street, and then take the second exit at a five way junction onto Leckwith Road, signposted Penarth and Dinas Powis. Proceed under two railway bridges and then turn left onto Sloper Road at a traffic light controlled crossroads. Continue for quarter of a mile; as you pass Cardiff City Stadium and immediately before an HSS tool hire shop, Clos Parc Morgannwg will be on your right – there is now a brown tourism sign at the entrance to the road.
From outside Cardiff, travel to Junction 33 on the M4 and leave the motorway to join the A4232. After six miles exit the A4232 at the B4267 turn off, sign-posted Cardiff City Stadium.

At a traffic light controlled crossroads, just before a railway bridge, turn right onto Sloper Road. Continue for quarter of a mile; as you pass Cardiff City Stadium and immediately before an HSS tool hire shop, Clos Parc Morgannwg will be on your right – there is now a brown tourism sign at the entrance to the road.
