A Historic Venue for Room Hire Cardiff

During the Industrial Revolution, The Exchange Grand Hall played an integral role in Cardiff’s development. This opulent pace welcomed business men during peak trading hours to make influential coal trade deals.

Most notably, it’s thought that in 1901 the first £1 million business deal was made from the Coal Exchange’s trading hall floor, earning Cardiff worldwide recognition on the map.

Today, the Grand Hall stands proudly as a carefully restored venue, retaining its historic magnificence.
