Of all the Cardiff Arcades, Wyndham is the one, that for me at least, is easy to forget. It’s a little bit out of the way (well by comparison), is smaller than the others and doesn’t have as many shops. In fact, quite a few are empty.
Inside there’s a few gems that could be interesting for the project – namely a tobacco shop, inline skate shop and a pub.
The architecture of the Wyndham Arcade is similar in style to other Victorian arcades but it’s a lot more rundown and a lot less vibrant than the others.
Built in 1887, the arcade itself is a Grade II listed building so it’s not going anywhere, but I wonder what could be done to reinvigorate this arcade and give it the same buzz as its sisters just down the road?
I’ll keep an eye on the shops in here and see what I can do for the project, I have to remember not to forget about it as it’s been all to easy for me to do up to now.
What do you think of the Wyndham Arcade?
