Llanrumney Hall was originally built in 1450. It was rebuilt in 1852 as we see it today.
Before the original house was built, a small chapel existed on the site. It was built by monks from Keynsham Abbey who were given the land after the Norman Conquest in 1066.
The hall has some very interesting stories regarding its history. One such story is that a coffin containing the headless corpse of Prince Llewelyn Gruffudd was allegedly found in the hall. The owner of the time, John Hodder Morridge claims to have discovered the coffin sometime during his ownership, between 1812 and 1823. The stories say that after Prince Llewelyn was slain in battle in 1282, his head was presented to Edward I at Conway, and his body brought to Llanrumney.
Another story is that famous pirate Privateer Captain Henry Morgan was born at Llanrumney in 1635.
The building was bought by Cardiff Council in 1952 and used as a remand centre for boys. In 1956 it became a pub, finally falling into ruin by the 1980s. After recent renovation work, the hall has been brought back to its former glory.
People claim to have seen the headless ghost of Prince Llewelyn roaming the halls of the house.
Locals tell stories of how Prince Lewelyn was beheaded in the building, his body chopped up and scattered around the hall. This seems to be more of a spooky story altered over time to scare local children than anything based on fact.
