In Plasnewyd, Cardiff, the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama is an idyllic setting for your milestone wedding celebration. Found within the immaculate grounds of Cardiff Castle, this unique destination happens to border one of the largest and most beautiful parks in the UK.

Facilities and Capacity

The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama has two unique buildings, forming one of the region's most sought-after locations for that very special day. Your first option includes Cardiff Castle’s historic stables building, an open-air courtyard, and two elegant rooms accommodating up to 80 guests. Situated on a magnificent tree-lined avenue, you and your guests can arrive within Bute Park by car, horse, cart, or even water taxi. The second event area option is the magnificent glass-walled hall and terrace overlooking the park– the perfect backdrops for your photographs and champagne reception. If you plan to host a large gathering, the hall leads to a world-class concert theatre, perfect for a ceremony with a difference. When paired together with the glass atrium, bar and dance floor, you can look forward to accommodating 250 of your nearest and dearest.

Services Offered

When you choose to book the Royal Welsh College, you are guaranteed exclusive access to both buildings throughout your big day. Private get-ready facilities are available for luxurious, on-site preparations if the wedding party requires them. The in-house catering team will gladly customise your menu to reflect any particular preferences or dietary requirements you or your guests might have. This venue is dog-friendly in all outdoor areas, including the historic Anthony Hopkins Centre Courtyard.
