I loved this cathedral with its modern artistic cross in the centre of a beautiful old building. It's located in a pretty town, not too far from racy Cardiff. Well worth a visit. Don't forget to visit the ruins of the old castle!!

Beautiful day so we decided to walk alongside the Taff to Llandaff to see the cathedral. It was quite a long walk but enjoyable. We could see the cathedral from afar so had no trouble finding it. Unusual inside as a large concrete arch has been installed inside which looks bizarre at first but as the eye gets used to... More

We had seen the boys around the local area before the service and we also watched them rehearse just before the device began. They were really enjoying... More

I like to attend a local Sunday service whilst on holiday, so chose to visit Llandaff Cathedral. A lovely service with great music from the organ and choir. Stay for tea and biscuits afterwards and listen to the amazing bells pealing -all rung by hand. The Cathedral Green is interesting too.

This cathedral contains a painting by Burne-Jones, the famous pre-Raphaelite painter. Apart from that it is your bog-standard cathedral. It is however standing in a lovely spot which is both peaceful and beautiful and it is worth taking a walk around the immediate vicinity.

So here I was parked in the carpark oposite the school gates in Llandaff ,Tigers already out of it this season. You have to walk down the hill to the church which lets you admire... More

Simply stunning if you love history- the Royals use for state occasions- as Wales is the Principality under Prince Charles--thus best choir- in the gorgeous little village of LLandaff with nice restaurant are a close walk.

Situated on the banks of the river Taff this is the ancient cathedral that gives city status to both Llandaf and Cardiff. A very impressive structure and in peaceful surroundings.
