A nice-looking modern building.
Jul 2021
This is a lovely modern building, housing the Welsh Parliament.
Alas, due to Covid-19, there were no tours available inside the building.

It is ok.

This place looks quite unappealing and does not have the grandeur you would expect for a seat of parliamentary democracy. That said the design and style of the building is in keeping with the beauty of Cardiff Bay. It is work visiting.

Glorified bus stop

There's only one building in the UK worse than this and it's the Scottish Parluament in Hollyrood.
It does represent Welsh politics as the Welsh slate represents the slating the AMs should rightfully get for the nonsense discussed. The glass represents the bus station we dont have in cardiff and this building would be a perfect replacement

Down in the bay are of Cardiff l, this government building is another architectural wonder. Its stunning to look at. So ho inside watch the bebates and try and understand how your local government's works. Have a coffee in the cafe and see the memorial outside.

Cool Place

By far my favourite building in the world. It’s sustainable, attractive, and the staff are great.
I wish the opening times were longer and a bit more transparent.

Interesting insight into today’s politics in wales

Everyone should go just to see where our government works. Very nice Cafe inside if a bit overpriced but it does give a great view of the bay.

The Home of Welsh Democracy

It's not often one finds a modern building where form and function harmonise and where the staff's warm welcome is in tune with the purpose of the organisation. Here, when the Senedd is in session, the people of Wales can watch their Government at work. The galleries provide a splendid view of the proceedings. Computer screens at every seat help the visitor follow the agenda. The chamber is not set out in the confrontational 'two-swords-length' style, but, in keeping with Parliaments across Europe 'in the round'.
If politics is not your bag, the building is worth a visit in its own right. We chose a Sunday. The Parliament was not in session and we nearly had the place to ourselves. Unsurprisingly, airport-style security is in place at the entrance, distinguished by its courtesy and words of welcome. As we entered the foyer a guide sprang to his feet from behind his desk and offered further words of welcome, provided information about the building and radiated enthusiasm about the building and its function - fluently in both Welsh and English.
Impressive!

Beautiful building

This one sits right in the bay area and from the outside it's definitely worth a look. If you're interested in Welsh history, then it's also worth getting inside and having a good look around.

quite a good place here, beautiful building if you like that sort of thing, nice stuff to look at. It's a big place, so easy to get lost in, as i did once by getting out of the lift, on the wrong floor. You my get lucky to see a welsh debare from the parliament on certain days. Or on nice days, it outside

On first entering the building, we noticed armed police standing guard, before we were
searched and only then allowed to proceed. As I was confined to a wheelchair, we were accompanied by a guide who was really informative. We were shown into the empty debating chamber and shown around. We were both really impressed.
