Enjoy afternoon tea, guided tours and exceptional views at the Senedd in Cardiff Bay.
The Senedd is the home of National Assembly for Wales in Cardiff Bay. Open to the public seven days a week, its distinctive design and incredible architecture attract visitors from all over the world, and in 2015 the building was awarded a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence.
On St David’s Day 2016 the building celebrated its tenth birthday, and as part of the ongoing celebrations we are now offering afternoon tea to visitors.
For £14.95 per person you can enjoy a relaxing afternoon in the Oriel café, sipping Welsh tea and tucking into our freshly made scones, finger sandwiches and pastries. A number of tables on the balcony will be reserved exclusively for those having afternoon tea, so you can enjoy the outstanding view whatever the weather.
To celebrate the Senedd’s tenth birthday, for this summer only a Senedd travel mug (pictured) is also included in the price of the tea.
Visitors can have a free guided tour of the building either before or after their tea, where they will learn about the building’s fascinating history, architecture and sustainability. You could also find out who your Assembly Members are and how they represent your interests in the Senedd’s debating chamber.
The Senedd regularly hosts a variety of events with performers, singers, exhibitions and activities happening throughout the year so come along and see what’s happening!
