Penarth Off The Beaten Path: 7 reviews and 25 photos


When I arrived in Penarth, I first saw this interesting historical building that has been converted into two restaurants, but still has the words Custom House shown at the front.
It is a grade II-listed building, and was once housing the offices of the harbour officials. The architecture is really splendid and I think it bears witness of Penarth's more glorious days as an important harbour.

It was a nice welcome to see this building when I arrived, and just the first of several grand buildings I discovered while walking around the town.
