The Space

Plymouth Chambers comprises over 5,000 sq. ft. of completely unique city centre living. Classic Victorian; this stunning grade 2 listed building was built in 1888 by the Earl of Plymouth, the region’s largest land owner, for his Head of Estates. The property has been completely renovated, yet retains nearly all of its original features, including two strong rooms which were used to hoard the Earl’s rental collections. The house is brimming full of interesting antiques and a mixture of traditional and contemporary original artwork.

Plymouth Chambers has everything you could want for the perfect stay in Cardiff

Plymouth Chambers has double or triple glazing for sound protection; it has smoke detection in all rooms and emergency exit points on each floor leading to an external fire escape. The house also benefits from a full fire sprinkler protection system throughout.

All of the reception, hallway and landing lights come on automatically, so you won’t have to find your way in the dark at night.

Everything is simple to use and it’s the ideal place to stay in Cardiff if you want to experience the wonder of a stunning classic Victorian listed building, with all of the modern conveniences you’d expect in a new home. It’s also on the doorstep of some of Cardiff’s best wine bars and restaurants, as well as its thriving live music scene.

The Neighbourhood

Plymouth Chambers is located right in the heart of the City Centre right next to the iconic Millennium Stadium, Angel Hotel, Castle and Cardiff Arms Park. Cardiff is emerging in the new millennium as one of Britain’s leading urban centres. Spread between an ancient fort and an ultramodern waterfront, compact Cardiff seems to have surprised even itself with how interesting it has become.

Nowhere is this vitality more evident than in Cardiff’s buildings – it flexes newly acquired architectural muscles as if it’s still astonished to have them. Such confidence is infectious, and these days it’s not just the rugby that draws crowds into the city. Come the weekend, a buzz reverberates through the streets as swarms of shoppers hit the Hayes, followed by waves of revellers descending on the capital’s thriving pubs, bars and live-music venues. Cardiff also makes an excellent base for day trips to the surrounding valleys and coast, where you’ll find castles, beaches, interesting industrial sites and ancient monuments.

Getting Around

Plymouth Chambers is about 400 metres away from Cardiff Central Train and Bus Station. There are regular buses to the bay within 50 metres of the house and a water taxi stop is less that 250 metres away in Bute Park which can take you to Cardiff Bay in style.
