The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama is set in the grounds of Cardiff Castle, bordering one of the largest and most beautiful parks in the UK.

The college houses two unique buildings, forming one of Cardiff’s most sought-after locations for that very special day. The first is Cardiff Castle’s historic stables building. Its open-air courtyard and two elegant rooms accommodate up to 80 guests. Situated on a magnificent tree-lined avenue, you and your guests can arrive within Bute Park by car, horse and cart, or even water taxi!

The second is the magnificent glass-walled hall and terrace overlooking the park - a magnificent backdrop for your photographs and your champagne reception! For larger weddings, the hall leads to a world-class concert hall and theatre, perfect for a ceremony with a difference. Together with the glass atrium, bar and dance floor, up to 250 guests can enjoy a truly wonderful reception and party at this highly sought-after venue.

The two beautiful buildings we have available will be for your exclusive use. Our venue can give you creative freedom to shape the most magical day best suited to you.
