Fodor's Review

This massive neoclassical building next to the University of Wales houses notable Welsh and other Celtic literary works among its more than 4.5 million volumes. The cache of public records makes it an invaluable tool if you're tracing your family tree. Also here is the National Screen and Sound Archive of Wales, which hosts lunchtime and evening film screenings.
