Castle streets new outdoor eating area.

Cardiff Council has unveiled an artist impression of the new, outdoor, covered, eating area planned for Cardiff’s Castle Street.

The scheme is part of a wider range of measures being put in place in the city centre to increase useable, outdoor space for the hospitality sector which is trying to recover from the effects of the pandemic. The new hospitality area will allow businesses to trade safely in socially-distanced outdoor settings. Visitors will be able to order food and drinks for delivery from a selection of restaurants and cafes in the city centre via an app.

Work on asphalting Cardiff Street has already taken place and it is hoped the new outdoor area could be available to use by the end of the month.

The new outdoor space will be built directly on Castle Street, giving visitors a stunning view of the iconic castle in the heart of the city centre.

More details on how the space will be run will be released closer to the opening date.
