The Castle Quarter Arcades are a historical part of Cardiff’s architectural and retail heritage, spanning 131 years of public service since doors first opened in 1885.

Castle Quarter is comprised of 3 outstanding Victorian and Edwardian arcades, all located within a short distance of Cardiff Castle – Castle Arcade, High Street Arcade and Duke Street Arcade. Originally home to many specialist shops of the era – drapers, apothecaries, tailors, jewellers and fortune tellers – the Castle Quarter has grown and adapted to the needs of a modern shopping environment without losing any of it old world charm. We are now home to over eighty independent businesses.
