How Easy Was The Ground to Get To (from the station, by car, etc)
Fairly routine drive, not far off the M4. There is a regional station around the corner too, while the city centre one is walkable.

If Applicable, How is Parking Near The Ground?
Some street parking, but last time I went we paid to park at Canton Rugby Club. Let away fans in, have big screens with the early game on, and after paying for your parking, you get a voucher for a free drink at the bar, so pretty good really!

Based on Where You Were Sat, How Was the View?
Modern new ground, all good views.

How Were The Stewards on The Day?
Never any problems

If You Ate at The Ground, How Would You Rate the Food?
Never ate.

How Was The Atmosphere At The Ground, From Both Sets of Supporters? Does the Stadium Hold the Noise?
It was actually better when it was half full and not packed with glory hunting red shirt wearing bods who needed the words to Men of Harlech to be put on the big screen for them.

How Are the Pubs and Local Attractions in The Local Area?
As above, that bar at the rugby club is great, and if you've got the time, the city centre is walkable.

Overall Score Out of 10?
Great city, the ground itself is a bit dull though and not a patch on Ninian Park!
7/10

Simple drive down the M4 until you get to J33, then go onto A4032 and from then on it was very well signposted so extremely hard to get lost. It's right next to the Millenium Stadium.

If Applicable, How is Parking Near The Ground?
There is a car park at the ground, however by about 1 hour before kick-off it looked full. I went on a coach so I couldn't really suggest any nice places to park.
Based on Where You Were Sat, How Was the View?
Very nice view as there was no-one in front of me. As Smudge said, everywhere has a nice view.
How Were The Stewards on The Day?
The stewards were very nice, had no problems with them. However the Cardiff fans didn't seem very happy with them at their end, so might want to be a bit wary.


If You Ate at The Ground, How Would You Rate the Food?
I had a hot-dog. Wasn't the best i'd ever tasted.

How Was The Atmosphere At The Ground, From Both Sets of Supporters? Does the Stadium Hold the Noise?
The atmosphere was horrendous at the home end, probably didn't help it was less than half full. The atmosphere in the away end was great considering we only brought about 900 (I think), but then again you'd expect that from a derby.

How Are the Pubs and Local Attractions in The Local Area?
Don't know about the pubs but as i said earlier the Millenium Stadium is right next to it so might be worth having a stadium tour of that before the match.

Overall Score Out of 10?
As Smudge said, the ground is pretty dull and boring and poor attendances really aren't helping the atmosphere. I thoroughly enjoyed the game thanks to the atmosphere in the away ground, but i'd say the ground itself is a 6/10.

It's over a mile from the Millennium Stadium.
You can park for free in the streets of Canton.
Atmosphere has been great there for Wales matches, obviously no one gives a f*ck about Cardiff these days so atmosphere will be poor for league matches.

Fair enough, still walkable in less than 30 minutes and relatively close to the ground.

Oy!

It definitely is walkable. It's just not next door. When I do the Cardiff Half I park up by Leckwith Stadium and walk to the start in the city centre. It's about a mile.
