An truly eclectic mixture of architectural styles hidden in the dip of this tranquil valley. You simply would not believe how near you are to the centre of Cardiff.

I was blown away by the beauty of the cathedral! I am not religious, but have an interest in history and religious architecture and wow, what a perfect example this is! The volunteers inside are kind, friendly and knowledgeable. I made a donation because we came away learning so much about the building and its history. There is a stunning... More

Just a short cab ride from downtown Cardiff. The building was devastated by German bombs in WWII, but it has been beautifully rebuilt, and is a mixture of medieval to modern. I personally liked the Jacob Epstein's Christus sculpture mounted on a concrete arch, though some locals don't. It is worth seeing to make up your mind for yourself.

This small yet beautiful cathedral has an eclectic mix of interior styles that surprisingly blend well together. My favourite cathedral that I have visited. Remember to take some cash has the gift shop does not take cards.

As I grew up in LLandaff there was a need to revisit the Cathedral and what memories came back. It is still one of the finest in the UK and hidden down on the Taff plain it emerges as you walk down the hill toward it, both awesome and serene. Once inside the modern arch with Christ is humbling.

A beautiful, tranquil setting. Looks fantastic at any time of the day. We sawit when it was light, at twilight and when it was dark. A very impressive building.

As I stood at the door way I was stunned the arch just made me feel so in awe and then wondering around the Cathedral was all I could wish for.

This is a beautiful, peaceful, serene and uplifting building with a strong spiritual core, a loving centre and atmosphere, and a unique location.It is surrounded by a delightful village, all sparkling verdant lawns and a feeling of being at peace and content with life is the inevitable reaction to a few hours in the tranquility of its setting.Beautiful.

We went relatively early in the morning and the Cathedral was quiet. The outside of the building is architecturally stunning with wonderful stained glass art. The grounds are peaceful and it was easy to walk to from the nearby bus stop. The journey from Cardiff City Centre was slightly long and the Cathedral is the only landmark there. Inside was... More
