Llandaff Cathedral

The historic City of Llandaff lies to the north of Cardiff city centre, beside the River Taff. Built on the site of a Roman Road linking Cardiff Castle to Llantrisant, it boasts the magnificent Llandaff Cathedral, a bustling High Street, a picturesque village green and a thriving community.

This site is run by the Llandaff Society to share our delightful ‘City within a City’ with you, and to give you an insight into the history of one of Cardiff’s treasured ‘villages’.

If you have any comments about this site, questions about Llandaff or photos and stories you’d like to share, please contact us, and we will be happy to help.

Whilst we have attempted to clear copyright on the photographs included, if you own the copyright and would not like your pictures to be displayed, please contact us and they will be removed
