The Exchange Hotel (Cardiff)

This architectural gem is one of the best places to get married. Located in the heart of Cardiff Bay, The Exchange Hotel is one of the UK’s most historic wedding venues. Formerly known as Cardiff’s Coal Exchange, this iconic building was once home to the world’s thriving coal trade and is a special landmark of Welsh history. The ideal setting for an enchanting wedding, this Grade II* listed venue has been carefully restored following years of dereliction.

The Exchange Grand Hall features many of its most exquisite original fixtures, from the Corinthian columns and the infamous ceiling, to the original clock that adorned the hall in its heyday. Radiating a character, charm and history that simply can’t be found elsewhere, The Exchange Hotel is the most magical setting to get married.

Rainhill’s Grade II listed Loyola Hall is set to be transformed into a fairy tale wedding venue. Treasured by local people, this luxury setting is being taken back to its roots, embracing its original title, Rainhill Hall.
