Excellent facilities in a beautiful, historic setting

The Bute Park Education Centre offers a unique small conference and meeting venue situated within the city’s premier grade-1 listed historic park and arboretum.

Located right at the heart of Cardiff, the site is easily accessible, but has all the tranquility and beauty of a countryside getaway.

Set discretely behind a garden wall constructed with reclaimed bricks, the Education Centre was built with sustainability in mind and features a grass roof, solar panels and timber-clad facade.

If you are looking for an informal but well-equipped venue that enables guests to be inspired and stimulated by nature, then the Bute Park Education Centre is an excellent choice.

Particularly suited to meetings, workshops, seminars and small conferences, we offer a main classroom, optional break out room and a reception area, for display material. Your guests will enjoy a pleasant walk through the park to the venue (restricted vehicle drop off by arrangement), and there is a high-quality on-site caterer who will tailor buffets and refreshment packages to your particular taste and budget.

Our excellent facilities include:

  • Beautiful parkland setting with views into the working horticultural nursery
  • Easily accessible city centre location
  • Flexible training/exhibition/meeting spaces
  • Free WiFi
  • DDA compliance, including hearing loops
  • On-site caterer who will tailor packages to your individual taste, budget and dietary requirements
