Hi www, you can walk it (through a grotty part of town) or easily take a bus because the bus station is immediately opposite the train station exit. I think the bus numbers were included in the last post.

Thanks! Is there a grangetown station? can't quite see if that's what they mean from the map.

put the postcode into multimap and all will become clear!

How will you get all your purchases back if you walk?

Its a bit of a hike, about 1mile from the back car park, straight down Dumballs Road then right onto grangetown road, left over the bridge and then straight on - i would say it is best part of 3 miles - what about the return trip with parcels? i'd take a bus from cardiff central, or cab it.

Thank you, I'll be coming from Bristol. So is there a Grangetown station and is it nearer Ikea? I'm confused and the rail website wouldn't work earlier!
