Llandaff History & Archives
The Story of Llandaff

Llandaff's history has been traced back to late Roman times. The era of the Celtic saints led to the association of the site with the Welsh bishops Teilo, Dyfrig and Euddogwy and the subsequent Norman cathedral became a major place of pilgrimage. After the Reformation, Llandaff declined in importance but was extensively rebuilt in Victorian times when the cathedral was restored after a German parachute mine badly damaged the Cathedral, resulting in a controversial restoration. It is now a populous suburb of Cardiff but retains its identity as a "city within a city" and a distinctive character.
