Markets in Cardiff
Cardiff Market is an impressive Victorian structure which offers a unique shopping experience in the heart of a modern, bustling city.
Under one great glass roof you will find a wealth of products ranging from pots and pans to bread and butter, and from nuts and bolts to rock and roll.
