Pre-booked guided tours are available at the Senedd in Cardiff Bay.

Tours of the Senedd, Cardiff Bay

Pre-booked groups of visitors (of up to 40 in number) are welcomed at the Senedd and shown around the unique landmark building by Tour Guides. It may also be possible to meet Members of the Senedd, if this is requested beforehand and subject to their availability.

We offer Senedd tours suitable for smaller groups, families and individuals at 11am between Mondays and Fridays each week except Senedd recess periods.

We also offer walk-in tours when we are sufficiently staffed.

On business days (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday), visitors are shown the Neuadd, Oriel, Committee gallery and Siambr gallery. Presentations focus on the sustainable features of the building as well as the workings of the Senedd and last about an hour. A tour does not automatically include seats for Plenary sessions or Committee meetings. If these are required, they should be booked separately, which can be done up to three weeks in advance.

All tours are free of charge.

The Senedd Shop in Cardiff Bay offers visitors a range of Senedd branded souvenirs and gifts from Wales.

British Sign Language (BSL) Interpretation

BSL Interpreters, lip-speakers, palantypists and Makaton are available on request for Plenary, committee meetings and guided tours of the Senedd . Fifteen working days notice is required, as the availability of interpreters and translators is limited. This service can be booked at no cost to the visitor through the Senedd’s booking line. Details are below.
