Liberal Democrat MP for Cardiff Central, Jenny Willott, has commented on the news that the Vulcan Hotel in Adamsdown has closed and is moving to St Fagan's Museum. Responding to news that the official notification of plans to relocate the Vulcan Hotel to St Fagans has now been submitted to Cardiff Council, Jenny said:

"It is deeply disappointing for everyone who has been involved with the Save the Vulcan campaign from the outset that the pub is definitely closing.

"Since the news was announced that the pub once again faced closure, I have written to Brains, the Welsh Assembly Government and developer Rapport to try and prevent this from happening and I know the campaign group has been working non-stop to try and keep it open.

"Its closure will be a great loss to the local community but I am glad that, following the news the building will be donated to St Fagans National History Museum, the building and its history will not be lost from Cardiff entirely."

Following the decision to close the Vulcan Hotel, the property's owners Marcol Asset Management Limited, have agreed to donate it to St Fagan's National History Museum in order to preserve the building.
