Set in a peaceful, scenic conservation zone on the bank of the River Taff, Llandaff Cathedral is one of two cathedrals in Cardiff, the seat of the Bishop of Llandaff, covering the South Wales diocese. While the present-day structure dates from early in the 12th Century, the cathedral actually stands on one of the oldest sites in British Christian history, settled by St. Dyfrig in the 6th Century.

Despite that, this beautiful Anglican cathedral has endured a chequered history, falling into disrepair under Henry VIII, occupied by Parliamentarian troops in the English Civil War, badly hit by the Great Storm of 1703, and suffering extensive bomb damage during World War II that undid much of the restoration work that had been carried out to that point. Yet it has survived triumphantly, a majestic example of Norman architecture that has been carefully curated in recent years. The west frontage is considered one of Wales’ foremost examples of medieval art, while the figure of Christ in Majesty that hangs from a concrete arch added by George Pace takes the breath away when you enter the nave.

Visits to Llandaff Cathedral are easy - it is open every day of the week and holds services throughout the day concluding with evensong. Wheelchair access and free car-parking are available. Also worth noting is that the cathedral choral society, one of the oldest in Wales, puts on several large concerts every year, including a superb carol service in December.

"Beautifully decorated inside although the outside approach to the hotel is not very welcoming. Suggest an awning with the name of the hotel on it. I found the food was very good and it was a calming environment."
