This is one of my favourite churches with it's Arthurian connections. The stained-glass drawings are what I think is fantastic. The image of King Arthur is awesome, as is the smaller image of him underneath with a giant cross over one shoulder and a spear in his other hand. The inscription reads 'King Arthur returning from the battle of Mons... More

Much underrated cathedral- a hidden gem (you would easily miss it if you didn't set out to visit it). Set in it's own deep little ravine, this beautiful building has an exceptional exterior with numerous details. The interior is equally glorious with traditional stained glass windows and the stunning "Christ In Majesty" figure that dominates the center of the building.... More

What a beautiful cathedral in a stunning village. I felt like I was in a setting for Midsomer murders. So much history and so peaceful. Would of liked to stay longer but a service was starting soon. Will definatly be revisiting. This is a must see place if visiting cardiff

This cathedral is one of my favourite. A building of human scale, not built too large to impose itself on the landscape and surrounding country, but when examined it is bursting at the seams with items of interest, history and a sense of the quiet divine. On first encounter the cathedral seems very small, tucked in at the bottom of... More

Dominated by Jacob Epstein's Christ in Majesty, which bridges the nave. A holy place to rival or surpass St David's, on the outskirts of Cardiff, the church in its dell surrounded by ancient ruins and banks of daffodils. We were the only visitors, apart from a couple of clergy and other folk in a communion service. Really peaceful and highly... More

If you are ever in the Cardiff area then please go and see the magnificent Llandaff Cathedral.This cathedral is indeed a place of worship but also a building of such beauty. I often go there just to sit quietly with my thoughts while taking in the staggering beauty of the cathedrals interior. You do not have to be of any... More

As an ex RN person I was fascinated to see the HMS Llandaf ships bell there and as an ex personnel from the HMS Salisbury felt I was seeing a belated cousin !

What a spectacular place! The outside architecture is beautiful, as is the setting. Parts of the cathedral date from the 12th century, and they have a Celtic cross that is even older. A wonderful gentleman who volunteers there told us much of the history of the cathedral, including the ancient Celtic cross, and about the painting The Seed of David,... More

Well worth a visit, an interesting place with the epstein statue which like marmite you will either love or hate. The guides are very helpful.
