Arcade

The first of three arcades that now make up Castle Quarter, High Street Arcade was completed in 1885, with Duke Street added in 1902 creating Cardiff’s first adjoining arcade. Once home to a sea of apothecaries and fortune tellers the arcade now has a far more contemporary feel with sophisticated cafés and restaurants such as café and patisserie Nine Yards, Indian café Bwyta Bwyd Bombai, Barker’s Tea House, sandwich shop The New York Deli and Corner Coffee, as well as barbers, skate shops and vintage clothes stores.
