First time at the venue? Take a look at our at-a-glance short video of where to find our facilities and what to expect when you arrive. Looking forward to seeing you at the show!
There are two main entrances when you arrive - our Box Office Entrance on the left hand side of the building's front, just opposite the Admiral Building, and our South Entrance on the right hand side, opposite The Citrus Hotel.
When you enter through either entrance, please note that strict security checks are in place. Please avoid bringing bags wherever possible. All bags will be searched and any larger than an A4 size piece of paper will have to be checked into our cloakroom at a small cost. Rucksacks are not permitted in the building.
Please try and arrive as early as you can so that you don't miss any of the show!
Your ticket will be scanned as you enter and our stewards are always on hand to help make your visit to the Arena as enjoyable as possible.
Our foyer area just outside the main Arena space has a selection of delicious food outlets too.
Most importantly, we want you to have a great time at Motorpoint Arena Cardiff, so enjoy your event!
The virtual tour below offers a quick guide to the venue as you enter. Check out the entrances, how to get into the main arena and also see the bars and toilets within the main arena space.
Visit our bars upstairs!
We have bars situated within the main Arena space, but also have bars (and numerous toilets) on the first and second floor of the building, which you can reach via the stairs next to either entrance when inside the building. Please ask a steward or member of security staff at any time for directions.
The Danish Quarter - First Floor
Exit 7 - First Floor
Exit 7 is venue within the Arena that houses smaller gigs, but it transforms on main Arena show nights into a stylish bar, which feels like an exclusive backstage zone. Nuture that inner rock star. Open before and during the show for draught beers and ciders, spirits, soft drinks and snacks.
