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.

As noted elsewhere, several of the reviews are not related to the cathedral in Cardiff, but a different church altogether. TA have been advised. As for St David's in Cardiff: it's a small cathedral, but very pleasant and as it's right in the centre of town (just off Queen St) why not call in?

As another reviewer says, there's too much here that is NOT St David's in Cardiff - would be nice to see Trip Advisor sort it out. Have reported a couple of photos (main one of Landaff, second one of St David's in St David's, Pembrokeshire), so hopefully these will be removed. Many of the reviews are of St David's Pembrokeshire... More

Nevertheless I enjoyed the atmosphere of calm & serenity and it is worth a brief visit. It is a lot more sparse in its decoration than many cathedrals and is a contrast from Llandaff cathedral (which is the... More

St Davids is more like a large Parish Church, for locals more than tourists. Nevertheless I was welcomed there when attending Mass. It is fairly simply decorated and has a calm that is very welcome.

St Davids Cathedral, Charles St is the Roman Catholic Cathedral in Cardiff city centre. Llandaff Cathedral is Anglican in the suburb/village/city of Llandaff to the North of Cardiff. Of course there is also St David's Cathedral in the smallest city of St Davids out in west Wales. Confused yet?
