“A true Welsh gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Each time I make a trip to see my son I like to visit Llandaff Cathedral. The cathedral is a true historical gem and I never tire of walking around it. Over the ages it has been cleverly pieced together and the result is a minature and thoroughly interesting monument.
However, it is a pity that the cathedral shop staff are less than friendly. A smile and a little attention would not go a miss.......

“An interesting mix”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

The building is an interesting mix of architectural styles spanning from the twelfth to twentieth centuries. I personally found the cathedral's unkempt and overgrown cemetery to be the most interesting part.

“Many different eras in one building!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

This Cathedral is not the most awe-inspiring but is interesting for the way that many different eras have come together. It has been restored many times since it was first built in the 12th century, including recently because it was bomb-damaged in World War 2. The huge centrepiece by Jacob Epstein is magnificent - I agree with the previous reviewer on this one. Staff were friendly and pointed out things to us.
