The Ghosts of Llandaff: Stalk the grounds of Llandaff Cathedral on an audio tour

star-4

Follow the forgotten but, in places, ancient pathways which lie behind Llandaff Cathedral on this self-guided audio tour. Isolated, atmospheric, and away from modern urban Cardiff, they are filled with mystery, atmosphere, legend and ghost stories. In places, these paths were ancient Celtic trade routes or medieval roadways. They are filled with strange and sometimes spine chilling tales of ghosts and phantoms, still being witnessed and reported in modern times. In places, the atmosphere can become strange, overwhelming, even sinister, especially in the dark seclusion of the night! This tour follows a circular route taking you along a mysterious and atmospheric wooded lane, the scene of many ghostly experiences, before following the riverbank where more ghostly encounters and legends are told. The route turns back towards the Cathedral for more tales, and culminates in the old abandoned and overgrown woodland graveyard, with its intense atmosphere and ghostly tales.
