Catering for everything from weddings to conferences

A unique opportunity for exclusive hire and stay in the luxury of a grand private house

Mansion House, with its picturesque gardens and lavishly appointed rooms, is one of the most exclusive venues in the city centre. Perfect for conferences, private meetings, exclusive dinners and corporate events, you and your clients, can indulge in the luxury of a grand private house.

Nestled in its own private grounds only minutes from the city centre, this resplendent Grade II listed building was originally built in the mid 1890s for James Howell, founder of the famous city centre department store. As the former residence of the Lord Mayor of Cardiff, Mansion House continues to be used for civic events and corporate functions throughout the year.

The interior has retained much of its original features, with grand rooms and a fine staircase, inlaid woodwork and beautiful stained glass windows. On the first floor are The Lord Mayor’s private apartment and four en-suite guest bedrooms, which have hosted distinguished visitors including former prime ministers David Lloyd George and Winston Churchill, opera singer Adelina Patti, and even King George V. Hollywood couple Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones enjoyed a short stay at the Mansion House. Make your event extra special by relaxing overnight in one of the master

Mansion House’s dedicated in-house team is committed to delivering the highest level of service and support for your event.
