Bute Park is located in the heart of the City, just a short walk from the main high streets and civic centre. Head for North Road and follow signs for the main event entrance. 


There is no on site parking at Bute Park, however there are a variety of car parking facilities nearby.  

Pay and display car parking facilities are available nearby on North Road (CF10 3EA), College Road, King Edward VII Avenue & Museum Avenue. Please park safely and sensibly and in marked bays only. We would encourage customers not to park on Castle Mews Pay & Display as this car park is very small and can become very congested.
