Built to host the 1999 Rugby World Cup, Millennium Stadium is Wales' national stadium and is the home stadium of Wales' national rugby union team. Bligh Lobb Sports Architecture designed it. The stadium also hosts many other events, including the Speedway Grand Prix of Great Britain, boxing matches, and concerts from greats such as Madonna and Paul McCartney.
Millennium Stadium opened in June 1999 with a seating capacity of about 75 thousand. It is the third largest stadium in the Six National Championship and the second largest one with a retractable roof. Three-tier seating is available in all sections of the stadium, except for the North Stand, which is two-tiered. The stadium has several bars located throughout the grounds with each bar featuring a "joy machine", a device that can pour 12 pints of beer in less than 20 seconds. A hawk, affectionately known as "Dad" lives on the grounds and is used to help keep seagulls at bay.
Tourists that choose to check out Millennium Stadium can take in a concert, a sporting match, a conference or take a tour with an experienced tour guide. The tour includes guidance through the stadium's dressing rooms, tunnels, hospitality suites and President's box, as well as an up close and personal look at the press conference suite. Television and cinema fans might also enjoy the property, as it was used to film pieces of the popular television show "Doctor Who" as well as the film "28 Weeks Later".
Millennium Stadium is just a short walk from the Cardiff Central Railway Station and is also easily accessible by car. Please keep in mind that certain roads are closed to vehicles on event days.
