Excited to be watching the Six Nations at the Principality Stadium? If you’re lucky enough to have grabbed a ticket to one of the matches, we’re here to make sure you have all the transport information you’ll need to make your way around the city.

There will be a number of road closures in place throughout Cardiff on the match days, with some transport operators diverting their bus services as a result. With thousands of fans expected to hit the city centre, hopping on the bus can be a great way to save you the trouble of trying to find a good parking space and being caught in the traffic.

Missed out on tickets? We know the feeling! However, as many rugby fans will no doubt know, the atmosphere is all part of the experience, and there’s plenty of chance to have a great time celebrating the Six Nations outside of the stadium doors.

Cardiff is a hub of activity on match days, with many pubs playing the match on the TV; a great chance to hop on the bus and enjoy a celebratory drink whilst enjoying the game!

If the pubs aren’t for you, having a wonder around the city centre is sure to be a sight to see, with fans dressing up in their best Welsh outfits and getting into the Six Nations spirit. Why not catch the bus or train to town for a look around the shops, or watch the entertainment unfold outside one of Cardiff’s café’s?
