Royal Arcade, Cardiff
Royal Arcade is part of the Morgan Quarter along with Morgan Arcade. The two arcades were founded separately but united when Royal Arcade was purchased by David Morgan's Department Store. The two arcades are connected via Tabernacle Lane.
Royal Arcade is a Grade II listed building. It was fully refurbished in 2008 though some of the first-floor storefronts and Venetian windows were restored. Store number 29, 30 and 32 on St. Mary Street still have the original shop fronts.
There are nearly 30 shops that are currently part of Royal Arcade. Visitors can find jewelers, antiques, vintage collectibles, handcrafts, clothing and a number of restaurants.
