Glamorgan Cricket is delighted to also offer a pre-booked walk around Sophia Gardens Cardiff, using QR-coded information panels.
The walk around the stadium, developed in conjunction with Walk for Health, Outdoor Cardiff, the Cardiff Council Parks Department and Historypoints.org will allow visitors to undertake a leisurely stroll around the home of Glamorgan County Cricket Club, and discover a range of fascinating facts about the stadium, information about the game of cricket and the history of Wales’ only professional club, as well as learning about the long history of the Sophia Gardens area which in 1859 became the first public park in Wales as local landowner, the Marquess of Bute, addressed the need for healthy recreational facilities for residents and visitors in Cardiff.
You can make a booking for a group or individual visit on a non-match day, or to combine the walk with a full behind-the-scenes Stadium Tour (at £5 per person) by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that you must book at least 72 hours in advance of your planned visit in order to check availability.
