A very holy building full of history!

The mass looks very moving and is an ideal place for praying and quiet time to reflect. Also full of great statues inside.

Looking very majestic in it's home at the bottom of the valley, the cathedral is a fabulous place to visit for peace and tranquility. Recharge your batteries in the lovely gardens and visit the shop for local crafts. You really appreciate the workmanship of this magnificent building alongside the opposite ruin. Drink in the atmosphere then have a walk around... More

Apart from the sculpture, this is not the place to make a long trip out of Cardiff to visit. The setting is nice, and very peaceful.

Visited with my husband and our puppy. We travelled here after staying in a guesthouse after we had visited Tenby the day before. It was out of our way on the way home but my husband suggested it so we thought we would give it a go. Was a lovely day and the cathedral is spectacular, would so recommend everyone... More

This is a very special place. The peace in the building is palpable. I loved the beautiful ceilings and the opportunity to pray in the many different chapels. The choir were rehearsing whilst we were looking around. They sounded beautiful and I was sad not to be able to stay for Evensong. Unlike many larger cathedrals, this really feels like... More

Went here with a friend with our local holiday company.. My one regret is that I never got to go down and go inside My friend has difficulty in walking and it was quiet steep to go down and get back, but am looking forward to a return trip, and go inside the Cathedral. From the outside it looked really... More

While visiting Cardiff we visited this cathedral which is very large but not really that elaborate, especially by European standards.

This imposing cathedral dominates the small city. The info boards about the grounds explain that there has been a place of worship here for many centuries. From the serenity you feel in the grounds you can certainly see it as a place for spiritual pilgrimage. The cathedral itself is in good repair, although you can see and feel how it... More

I liked that it said what age each pillar came from (15th century) and you were allowed to watch the services and listen to the priest. The worker who sold bibles was very friendly too.
