Cambrian Place

Cambrian Place is one of Swansea’s older streets, its architecture dating from 1821, running from the Royal Institution (Museum) to the River Tawe close proximity to the town’s original proper dock- the South Dock, much later disused, filled in then later excavated and reborn in the 1980s as the City’s Marina Quarter. The street was hit by bombing in 1941 when the building adjacent to Pembroke Buildings was destroyed.

  1. The local Council used to have a Public Lighting stores at Cambrian Yard in Cambrian Place, and later the West Glamorgan County Council occupied Pembroke Buildings. You could actually go into Pembroke Buildings in Cambrian Place and emerge in Pier Street, lots used it as a shortcut.
