Llandaff, Cardiff




Llandaff (Welsh: Llandaf llan church + Taf) is a district in the city of Cardiff, Wales, having been incorporated into the city in 1922, and is also the name of a diocese of the Church in Wales, covering the most populous area of south Wales.

Llandaff Cathedral is also the parish church of Llandaff. Much of its fabric dates from the 13th century. It was badly damaged by bombing during World War II, and subsequently restored by the architect George Pace. One of its main modern points of interest is the figure of Christ in Majesty (1954-5), by Jacob Epstein, which is suspended above the nave.

Llandaff is also home to a preparatory school (The Cathedral School), which Roald Dahl attended. Roald Dahl was also born here. Other famous births include pop singer Charlotte Church and choirmaster and organist Sir Ivor Atkins. BBC Wales have their headquarters there. The welsh artist Ivor Williams lived and painted in Llandaff House until his death in 1982. The independent GDST school, Howell's School Llandaff, is also based in the area and recently expanded from an all-girls school to include the co-educational Howell's Sixth Form College.

 Trains: The area is served by rail at Llandaff railway station.

 Buses: Llandaff has the following bus services 24, 25, 33, 33A, 60, 62 and 62A
