Less than two hours from London, Cardiff is Europe’s newest and fastest growing capital city. Located in South Wales on the Bristol Channel, Cardiff is easily and quickly accessible from most major towns and cities.
The School of Law and Politics is located at the northern end of the University campus, within walking distance of the City Centre. The School is easily reachable by foot, rail, road or bus. Our address is Museum Avenue, Cardiff CF10 3AX. Please note that you can enter the building from either Museum Avenue or Park Place and the bulding itself is located on the corner of Park Place and Corbett Road.
The Cardiff-London InterCity service, from London Paddington, runs seventeen times a day with a journey time of less than two hours. Frequent regional & inter-city trains connect Cardiff with:
- Bristol (50mins)
- Birmingham (2hrs)
- London (2 hrs)
- Southampton (2hrs 40mins)
- Manchester (3hrs 20mins)

The School is a 25 minute walk from Cardiff Central station. Alternatively local trains run frequently from Cardiff Central to Cathays station, a 2 minute walk from the School. For information on train times and availability and journey prices, visit National Rail Enquiries.
Cardiff is served by the M4 and is easily accessible from all parts of the UK.

- From Scotland, the north of England and the Midlands, travel via the M50 to the M4.
- Travelling east on the M4. Leave the motorway at Junction 32, follow the A470, signposted City Centre, into the Cathays area of the city.

Parking on campus is extremely limited and therefore we would recommend using public transport or one of the car parks in the centre of the city, which are a 10 minute walk from the University.
The Dumfries Place NCP car park is £19 for the day and near the rest of the city centre.
The North Road car park is £5.20 for the day and near Bute Park & the civic centre.
