Llandaff Cathedral

Llandaff is one of the most important Christian sites in Wales. Famous for its stunning Cathedral that was heavily damaged by a German landmine during the Second World War, this is where the author Roald Dahl grew up.

As we drive through this quaint area of Cardiff your guide will point out the Cathedral School, where the young Roald Dahl studied, and the site of Mrs Pratchett’s sweet shop on Llandaff’s High Street which is said to have inspired several of Dahl’s stories including Mathilda and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Once at Llandaff Cathedral, your guide will point out where scenes from Vincent and the Doctor, The Eleventh Hour and Family of Blood were filmed and discuss how Wales can double up as France, England, and so many other International destinations without even getting on a plane!
