Train: The nearest main line station is Cardiff Central. There is a fairly regular train service from Cardiff Central Station to Cardiff Queen Street Station. This is within 400 yards walking distance of the prison.
Bus: As the prison is very near to the city centre, any bus taking you into Cardiff passes the prison.
From M4 westbound: Leave M4 at Junction 29 where the road splits (Swansea etc. to the right and Cardiff to the left onto the A48M). Follow the dual carriageway and take the third exit (docks/Cardiff east, A4161). Remain on the A4161 and follow the signs for Cardiff City Centre, through several sets of traffic lights with Cardiff Royal Infirmary and the Blind Institute (Shand House) on your left. After passing the Blind Institute take the first left into Fitzalan Road (before the Railway Bridge).
From M4 eastbound: Leave M4 at Junction 33 signposted Cardiff (Wales) Airport. At the roundabout take the second exit (A4232) and follow the dual carriageway; after passing through the Butetown tunnel take the first left then take the second exit at the next roundabout. Follow this dual carriageway over a flyover; you will then see the walls of the prison. Turn right and follow the wall - turn left and left again, the multi-storey car park will be on your right.
Parking: There is a multi-storey car park directly opposite the prison.
