Conferences & Meetings

City Hall is the centrepiece of one of the world's finest civic Centres, featuring impressive buildings, landscaped gardens and tree-lined avenues.

Within the magnificent Renaissance exterior of City Hall can be found elegant rooms of all sizes to meet any conference, event or function requirement. This majestic building offers a spacious venue for large-scale events yet smaller rooms are also available for more intimate gatherings and syndicate sessions. The spacious Assembly Room can host a conference for 600 delegates and the elegant Marble Hall is perfect for presentations and receptions. Available for hire all year round, City Hall also offers good wheelchair access.

Behind its magnificent facade, you will find that City Hall is surprisingly flexible and can accommodate state-of-the-art conferencing and hi-tech communications systems.

The venue had welcomed a variety of international conferences and high-profile events over recent years, including international software workshops, European Council Meetings and most recently was Rally Headquarters of the Wales Rally GB.

Located in the city centre, your guests will be within walking distance of a large variety of hotels, a superb shopping centre, Cardiff Castle, the Millennium Stadium, the National Gallery of Wales and Cardiff's central train and bus stations.


At City Hall, you can be assured of a warm welcome, as well as superb service and full support from our Functions Team. Additional support for conference organisers is also available from Cardiff Conference Bureau, whose services include an accommodation-booking service, venue advice and suggestions for partner programmes and social itineraries. Choose this venue for your function or conference and you can be confident that it will be an event that everyone will remember.
