Real historic shopping arcade that is covered and is lined with shops. Look out for The Royal Arcade that dates back to 1858.

High Street Arcade is full of shops selling a variety of things and it has some really good eateries as well. You need a bit of time to fully enjoy. Plenty of shopping so it is a good spot to visit.

The Victorian arcades of Cardiff are delightful. The shops along them are interesting but you are touching history walking along these first covered ways for shoppers.

This nicely located the heart of the city's shopping core. As you enter this fully protected shopping area, you find it full of many neat little retail stores and food outlets. These are not chain type stores. They are all little individual merchants. Fun to...More
