Norwegian Church Arts Centre, Cardiff: 15 reviews and 34 photos


A famous landmark in Cardiff bay is the magnificent Norwegian Church. It was originally built in 1868 as a place of worship for Norwegian sailors. The original building was situated a mile from where it is now, in 1987 the building was dismantled piece by piece and re-located at its' current waterside position. It now houses a Coffee Shop and gallery, there are also rooms available for hire. I love going here on a cold winters day to escape the elements & peer out of the windows over to the Barrage.

The Norwegian Church has just undergone a major revamp to improve disabled access, toilet facilities. It also now has a lovely decked area which overlooks the bay.
