Senedd Tours

The Senedd is not just a building for Members, it is your building. It is the main public building of the National Assembly, the main centre for democracy and devolution in Wales. It is an open building – a building into which you can walk, have a cup of coffee in the Oriel on the upper level, and go into the public galleries from the Neuadd on the centre level. And it is not just visitors that come here to see and enjoy the Senedd – we have also had performers, singers, exhibitions and all sorts of activities going on here, because it is a public building.

It is also a sustainable building, built of traditional Welsh materials such as slate and Welsh oak and other sustainable materials. It is also sustainable in the way it is heated; for example, the earth exchange system uses heat from the bottom of the old dock, on which the Senedd stands, before it became the area which is now Cardiff Bay. This is what this building represents. It represents sustainability, it represents democracy but it's more than that too – it is the symbol of the new nation that Wales has become. I hope you enjoy your visit to this site and that you will realise its value for you. This is Welsh democracy in action – this is devolution and it is yours!

Author's Review

During your visit to Cardiff, a tour around the National Assembly for Wales Building has to be on your itinerary. Senedd tours are on offer daily and they really do give you an insight into the everyday goings on, in not only a Welsh politicians life, but for the hundreds of people who go to work in this building everyday. Once passed the airport style security, your free to grab a coffee etc from the cafe and take in the views of Cardiff Bay. Once your tour is ready to go, you'll be taken on a journey around this very impressive building. The National Assembly building isn't just a building where people sort out the politics of the day, but also a building that is very much in the hearts of Welsh people as it's where all the decisions are made that affect their daily lives. All in all I found the tours here informative, interesting and great value for money.
