Accommodation: We have arranged a selection of accommodation options for that will provide for a range of options


Please be aware that the availability of the nearby well-priced University en-suite accommodation is determined by the University. Our advice, if you are interested in this, is do not delay in making a booking (£25.63 per night is a very good price!)

Also, we have also been receiving a requests for information on a variety of other accommodation choices.  Although we cannot organise these for you, we recommend you shop around and consider Guest Houses, Bed & Breakfast establishments, as well as hotels. There are additional 'budget' establishments such as 'Ibis', 'The Big Sleep', 'Sleeperz',  etc.  The Cathedral Road area to the west of the City Centre has long been popular with visitors too, though prices now cover a wider range than previously.

Popular search sites include:

Trip Advisor https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk

Booking.com http://www.booking.com<http://www.booking.com/>

Trivago  http://www.trivago.co.uk<http://www.trivago.co.uk/>

There are others, and note that is worth checking several sites as some may have special deals with particular hotels.

Do read the reviews and look at the distances from the city centre.  Cardiff is relatively small and much accommodation is within easy walking distance of the City Centre and the Museum, however, some may prefer accommodation outside the central area ... and this may well be cheaper.

Finally, don't forget that we welcome contributions — no matter how small — a photograph, a reminiscence, a letter, a conversation or correspondence shared of your experiences or interactions with Kristian Fauchald.  We would have loved to have welcomed him and Len to Cardiff this August. We will certainly raise a glass ... or two ...

We look forward to seeing you

If you have any queries, please contact IPC2016 from museumwales.ac.uk

Kind Regards
