First time visitors in Cardiff we attended Palm Sunday at St-David's Cathedral, it was a delight. Palm blessing outside by the Bishop followed by procession and Mass with the contribution of a large all ages acapella choir which added a lot to this solemn celebration. We were most pleased to attend our Mass there, the five of us will have... More

Great to see so many worshippers in and out on an otherwise quiet afternoon. We would have liked to have read more about the 100 years of cathedral's existence. Great to see that our former West London school chaplain is now archbishop.

What a wonderful feeling to be back in this seat of peace and tranquillity. We were greeted on entering the cathedral by one of the assistants who explained where all the necessary facilities were and we're given a pamphlet about the cathedral. To gently walk round this ancent seat of religion and to feel its atmosphere was awe inspiring

St David's Cathedral appears to have stood still firmly in its place whilst the city has continued to develop around - now it is neatly tucked in alongside St David's Shopping Centre. In the 1920s the Roman Catholic church of St David became a cathedral. Having suffered greatly during the second world war it was largely rebuilt and refurbished to... More

As a family of 6 spread over 3 generations places to visit can be a challenge so we were not sure that the Cathedral would interest the teenagers but the ruined Cathedral and the current Cathedral and the city itself provided a good afternoon out great ice cream from the chocolate shop on the hill and lovely weather no doubt...

This was an unexpected stop and we spent the whole day here. It was stunning with many interesting artefacts to observe. The grounds were peaceful and relaxing and the village lovely.
