Voting is now closed for the City of Arcades Top 10. We will be revealing the list on Friday 27 July.
The second of three arcades that now make up Castle Quarter, Duke Street was finished in 1902 and links to High Street Arcade, creating Cardiff’s first adjoining arcade. Designed in an iconic Gothic style of the time, the building is particularly striking and sits opposite the Castle. The arcade retains many quirky details, including a stunning painted floor, and is home to cafes such as Ruin and Garlands, as well as hairdressers, barbers and art dealers. Upstairs houses Cardiff’s creative community and the arcade has played host to several events including the end of year show’s for local students.
