Mermaid Quay is one of Cardiff’s most popular visitor destinations, with an annual footfall of over 5.5million.

We have a variety of opportunities for businesses ranging from units suitable for pop-up shops, carts for retailing crafts or other quality products and space for experiential promotions.

Prices vary depending on time of year/day of week, use (with preferential rates for activities that add value to our visitors’ experience) and location within the centre.

We need a minimum of 48 hours notice to process the paperwork. We will require you to submit a method of work statement/detailed description of what you want to do, a site-specific risk assessment and public liability insurance with minimum cover of £5m per single incident.
