Llandaff Cathedral

Cathedral Green Llandaff Cardiff CF5 2LA

In the quiet suburb of Llandaff, two miles northwest of the city centre, Llandaff Cathedral is Cardiff’s most important place of worship, and has been since the 6th century. The present incarnation dates from the 12th century, since which time the cathedral has had a pretty rough time of it, particularly during World War II when it was almost totally obliterated by a German landmine. The rather crude Christ in Majesty sculpture aside, the airy interior features some bewitching detail, such as the beautifully painted 13th-century Lady Chapel and the hanging tapestry in the Dyfrig Chapel. While you're here, take a stroll around the medieval walled garden too, with its beautifully manicured lawns and neat rows of herbaceous plants.
