Overview

Dating back to 1858, Royal Arcade is the city’s oldest arcade. Starting life as a retired slum house, the Royal Arcade was brought to life by The Cardiff Arcade Company and became the first full scale shopping centre in the city.

Beginning at the top end of St Mary Street, the arcade snakes through to popular shopping destination, The Hayes and is part of the Morgan Quarter. As much a hub of culture now as it was 150 years ago, the arcade has a variety of alternative coffee shops, cafés and delicatessens such as Uncommon Ground Coffee, Fresh and Wally’s, alongside several quirky independent clothes stores, jewellers and photography shops including Cardiff Antiques centre and Sobey’s Vintage.
