The city of arcades


Housed in the walls of Cardiff’s arcades is a maze of independent stores. With over 100 local eateries and retailers on offer, the arcades allow for a shopping experience like no other. 150 years of Welsh retail history are brought together under a roof of classic Victorian and Edwardian architecture. Now modernised to reflect the vibrancy of life in the city, these independent businesses are at the heart of Cardiff, The City of Arcades.
