Please note that the Senedd Commission has agreed that, due to the risks from COVID-19, all of the Senedd Estate will remain closed to the public until after the election in May 2021 at the earliest. Any in-person opportunities described on this page may not all be available at present but we hope to be able to run them again shortly. Our online opportunities continue to be available.

 

Tŷ Hywel is our office in Cardiff Bay where Members, their Support Staff and staff of the Senedd Commission work.

It is connected to the Senedd by a pair of skyways to give easy access to our key business rooms - but Tŷ Hywel also houses two of the committee rooms, many meeting rooms and our Education Suite which includes the old debating chamber now known as Siambr Hywel.
