The Norwegian Church is a curious one, isn’t it? Its existence comes from Cardiff’s past as one of the UK’s major ports, and the one at which the Norwegian Fleet had a centre. That led to this church being built in 1868 on land bought from the Marquess of Bute, ostensibly to improve the morale of the Norwegian soldiers and merchants and thus improve relations between the two states. The changing world of the 20th century saw the church fall into disrepair before being revamped and renovated in the 1990s. Today it is used as an arts centre, housing a charming cafe and an excellent gallery. Roald Dahl was baptised here, if you were curious.
