Previously I have sat in the grand (marble) hall for a concert, a beer tasting event and a conference. It is an amazing hall and still in excellent condition including the fresco's on the ceiling.
Today I wondered along the corridors and had a good look at the sculptures (busts) and paintings. There is a lovely painting of Sir Winston Churchill receiving the Freedom of the City on 14/07/58 only days before I was born and when the British Empire & Commonwealth games were held in Cardiff. The receptionist was very helpful and worth speaking to upon arrival to establish if there are any areas closed that might disappoint your visit.

Cardiff City centre is rated as one of the most beautiful in the world.The City Hall is a beautiful building,and the whole centre was planned as one entity,and it shows.I got married here fairly recently,and it was nice,apart from the solemnity of the occasion,to revisit a truly lovely building.The staff are helpful,and some of the rooms are amazing.
We had a great day there,and many thanks to Owen,the Registrar,who made the whole ceremony very relaxing,and a touch humourous.

Fantastic venue for Awards, Dinners, Weddings or just as a memorable visit to the capital of Wales. The history and architecture of the building is very interesting.
