Explore High Street

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 Indian café Bwyta Bwyd Bombai, Barker’s Tea House, and Corner Coffee, as well as barbers and vintage clothes stores.
