Before you walk into Llandaff Cathedral with all its PreRaphaelite treasures, you will see that the immediate surrounding area of the Cathedral has its own beauty.
As you approach the village, before you reach the Cathedral, you will find the Gateway to the Bishop’s Castle which was probably built by William de Braose. In 1404 the Castle was attacked by Owain Glyndwr and left in ruins.
Proceed towards the Cathedral through the Radyr stone Victorian lych gate, which was built by John Prichard, and walk down the path to the west front of the Cathedral.
If you stand with your back to the west front door of the cathedral, you will see the Dean’s steps
