List of shopping arcades in Cardiff

This list of shopping arcades in Cardiff lists the indoor shopping centres and arcades in Cardiff city centre, Wales. Cardiff is known as the "city of arcades", due to its Victorian, Edwardian and contemporary indoor shopping arcades.

Up until the 1790s there were only 25 retail shops in Cardiff. Most shopping at that time was made from market stalls.cite web |url= http://www.cardiff-market.co.uk/content.asp?nav=4%2C11&parent_directory_id=1|publisher=Cardiff Market |title= A History 1700s |accessdate=2008-06-13] The opening of the Royal Arcade in 1858, which was the first indoor arcade built in Cardiff, significantly increased in the numbers of shops in Cardiff.
