A range of souvenirs and gifts are on sale, including books, confectionery, and an exclusive range of Cardiff Bay memorabilia. Open 7 days a week 10am to 6pm, with extended opening times on performance nights.

Located in the millennium centre in Cardiff Bay the visitor centre is well stocked with local products for sale as well as free information and advice. Help varies depending on the staff on duty.

Cardiff Bay visitor Centre is located together with the Millennium Centre. That being said, it is housed in a very beautiful building. Despite that, it is not as helpful as you would expect from a visitor centre.

The souvenirs are Welsh by design but mostly mass produced from China, don't expect a decent unique gift here, unless you're feeling lazy. The information provides very little, if you're already on trip advisor, you pretty much have everything you need.
