Llandaff Cathedral, Cardiff

(400+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
With a history stretching back to the sixth century, Llandaff Cathedral calls to mind the legend of King Arthur, who is even depicted in a stained-glass window. The cathedral has been threatened twice: once in the time of King Henry VIII, when pilgrims and their maintenance-supporting donations were forbidden, and again during World War II due to a landmine. In this century, you’ll see that the cathedral remains well-maintained and features a distinctly evocative statue of Christ by the sculptor Jacob Epstein. Take a look around this cathedral and learn a little about the history of the Catholic church in Wales. Take a look at our Cardiff tourist route planner to schedule your visit to Llandaff Cathedral and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
