LOL LOL LOL! I thought I'd do a quick google to see if I could help (always interested in disabled parking as hubbie needs it).

I went here to see if there was a list of parking rates in the city. What a pathetic website as far as disabled people are concerned!!!! I suggest you ring them on (029) 2087 3131 and share your feelings on the way their website helps disabled people!

In particular, I am vastly entertained that the Cardiff Council page says 'Holders of orange "disabled" badges are eligible to apply for disabled persons' parking bays outside their homes'. They obviously haven't seen a disabled badge for some time - how many years is it since they went blue???? :rolleyes:

Actually you can just see that there is some disabled parking at the bottom of Westgate Street. If you click on the pathetic little map, it gets larger. And the legend says that a thick blue line means disabled parking. There is one of these at the Wood St end of Westgate Street, if you can walk that far or someone can drop you off

yes, westgate street would be completly closed off on match days.

there WAS disabled parking on the hayes, but that isnt available anymore due to ongoing construction in the city

the best place i can think of is churchill way, but that is a fair way from the millennium stadium.

perhaps your best bet would be to phone the stadium directly (or perhaps the booking office if you cant get a direct line), and ask them where they would recommend. after all, they would be best to advise about which roads are closed off on match days
