Great architecture and some Gothic type pics can be done here. However, there's not much else to it and doesn't take that long to explore (in my opinion)

Have lived near Cardiff for a long time, decided to visit and wow! Welcoming guides, happy to talk you through the details of the artefacts and architecture of the Cathedral. Stunning mix of ancient and more modern.

I have to start the review by admitting I am biased. Years ago, in a previous century, I grew up in Cardiff and as a child and teenager occasionally visited Llandaff Cathedral and the nearby cemetery where some forebears are buried. As a result my return furnished me with much joy as so little had changed. Granted Llandaff is much... More

ANYONE staying in the centre of Cardiff who wants to visit Llandaff Cathedral should plan their visit with care. We stayed at a hotel in St Mary Street, picked up a copy of the Cardiff Visitor Guide....and nearly walked ourselves to exhaustion because of it.

after seeing on Songs of Praise went to visit in 'real 'life'. Hidden in Llandaff it was worth the 90 min walk through Bute Park although it can be reached by bus. Hearing the organ was wonderful.
