Millennium Stadium - Review
Situated upon River Taft is the enormous and magnificent Millennium Stadium. With a capacity of up to 70,000 people and a sliding roof to boot, this arena has played host to innumerable legendary football matches, concerts and has become synonymous with rugby. Whether you’re here to watch an event, reminisce about the past or just take a guided tour, you won’t be disappointed.
The Stadium was built as a replacement for The Arms Park in 1999. Since its inception, numerous events have taken place that cemented this stadium in the hearts and minds of the Welsh. The massively popular Rugby World Cup inaugurated these beautifully maintained grounds, and it was here where Wales beat South Africa for the first time in 12 matches during the 1999 Rugby Union matches. History was made in 2007, when one of the biggest nights in boxing attracted 50,000 people to the arena to witness the night when Joe Calzaghe was emerged the Best Boxer in the World in the middleweight category. The prestigious FA Cup Finals enthralled the fans to bits within these walls from 2001-2006. Besides a huge array of legendary sporting nights, the arena has hosted concerts features world famous artists such as The Rolling Stones and Madonna. The Stadium’s even appeared in certain episodes of Doctor Who!
- If you visit during a rugby match, be sure to buy tickets. The true heart and soul of the stadium pours out when this nationwide favourite sport is played. The electric energy levels make this enormous stadium almost feel cramped!
- You can take guided tours around the arena during empty days, and you’ll be able to experience the dressing rooms, where numerous famous athletes and musicians have prepped before show time. You’ll get to sit in the Royal Box and hear the roar of tens of thousands of fans you walk down the players' tunnel towards the turf.
- You’ll get to learn a lot of trivia and fun facts about the several events that have taken place here.

Millennium Stadium, Cardiff Reviews
Great stadium whether for gigs or sport. Have seen Coldplay here and the acoustics were good. Would recommend when attending any event here you eat and drink before attending as the quality of food is poor and the prices extortionate. Also make sure you turn up early. Security checks can be slow, be prepared to lose your umbrella if you take one as staff do not allow these through to the stadium.
Even at the very top, the view was amazing. Could see the entire game with no heads in the way either. My only complaint is the pre-game queue took way to long and we missed the national anthems and kick off. Watching an international friendly for £20 isn't bad either. Definitely would go again.
Visited the stadium to see The Rolling Stones #No Filter European Tour 2018. Easy to park and walk to venue. Stadium designed to handle the big crowds of people so lots of security, medics and stewards. Baggage security is strictly professional and thorough. Stage was massive along with big screens. Excellent evening. Good sound for an open air gig (roof can be closed weather depending). Great venue and highly recommended. Note food and drink is very expensive and queues likely.
Unbelievable venue in terms of atmosphere containment. Good view from everywhere. Clean. However, allow at least 30 mins entrance time due to security scans funnelling everyone through a narrow set of guards. Needs to be sorted.
My husband and I went on the Stadium tour today. Our tour guide was Steve and he was unbelievably knowledgeable about every aspect of the Stadium and the history of Welsh rugby. I specifically wanted to see my Grandfather's name on the Honours Board dated 1911. It was a real bonus for me to discover that the whole tour was so interesting.
