The Siambr is the Welsh Assembly's debating chamber, where plenary sessions take place.

It is a large circular space in the centre of the Senedd building, with a funnel in the main roof to let air and natural light into the debating chamber below.

Each Assembly Member (AM) has a desk made from Welsh oak, incorporating electronic voting equipment.

There is a public gallery looking down on the Siambr.
