Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    I was on a tight schedule, so I didn´t visit the natural history sections. The paintings included works by Van Gogh, Monet, Manet, Cézanne and Canaletto (excuse any spelling mistakes), as well as British painters such as Wright (from Derbyshire, like me). As the admission is free, I recommend a visit. I didn´t eat or drink anything, but the prices of the cakes and drinks seemed high.

    Good place to buy fresh vegetables and fruits, or fish and meats. Also good for a snack or a full meal. We stopped by and got a few things here. Prices are reasonable…

    On arrival in Cardiff on sunday it was lucky to see the market properly on its peak time. It's right in the middle of the city center huge glass building with plenty, plenty of shops, cafes and different kinds of market activities very interesting and really good for a bargain definitely a unique experience to be here.

    Thursday to Saturday opening days only. Many vendors spread over the floors with many specialising in subject areas such as militaria for example. Takes a while to browse through all the areas. Stall holders look after each other so if one is unmanned just ask at one that is. Away from the crowded sections of the City Centre so is a little haven of peace from the crowds.

    Cardiff has a number of arcades in the city center and this is another very attractive. Victorian or Georgian and great style with some interesting shops. This for me is the most attractive. Probably why it gets the royal title

    I found this place to be really good. Yes it is a bit rough and ready, but then again, it is a flea market, what do you expect? If you like a groomed sales assistant calling you Sir, then there are other antique markets you should visit and pay the premium for being treated like in the Harry Enfield's sketch... The reason i love this place is that every time i visit, i see, and often wish i had bought, even if i have no room for it, so many stunning gems: a french cast iron farm stove, g-plan sideboard (was at the time the fraction of today's prices, and that was only 2-3 years ago!), an outdoor walking stick (maybe circa 1940s) thingy that convert into a seat - genus design and so quirky. Also i have recently had my 60's turntable/LP player serviced there by a chap called Mark - I mean, where else would you find someone who knows everything there is to know about 60's Pye model? So please, this is not a car boot or a brick a brack. People there know how to and do restore furniture and other stuff - they are experts. I found the seller, on the whole, knowledgeable and happy to talk, as well as happy to let you browse. If you genuinely want to find some little gems, that's your place.

    This is a rather ordinary shopping mall.
    The mall is located in the center of town and is pretty convenient, albeit it is somehow boring.

    An excellent gallery space showing established and emerging artists. Very friendly staff and regular courses being run from artist studio spaces.
    I have bought a number of artworks over the years through the Arts Council of Wales collector plan which makes buying on interest free credit easy and affordable.

    Without notifying the public, this gallery is now closing. So it was a total waste of time to go there and find only a very few pictures on display. I was very disappointed with the gallery owners that they could not have been more honest with the public.

    Opposite Cardiff castle this arcade dates back to 1902, and is home to a small number of impressive cafes and independent retailers.

    We went here to attend a preview of a particular artists work which was well laid out in a light airy room. The e hi Bitcoin was very good and the preview well attended. We also looked upstairs and downstairs at other artists work.
    This is a well laid out spacious private gallery well worth the visit.

    The Albany Gallery has to be an out of town hidden gem. It’s in Albany Road above Mama Lina’s restaurant and had been in the same location for over 50 years. There are changing exhibitions of mostly Welsh art along with ceramics and jewellery. The staff are friendly, non pretentious and very helpful. It’s certainly worth adding your name to their mailing list and you will receive emails with information of every exhibition - around 10 a year.

    If you are interested in photography, don't miss the third floor gallery. It hosts some of the more interesting photographers, both new and established, and ploughs it's own furrow , away from the established corporate world. This also extends to it's location- three floors up on the corner of Bute street in Cardiff Bay (above the taxi office). It is worth the effort to seek it out, and to support it, as it's run with the help of volunteers. Unlike most other galleries, it's also welcoming.
