Hamadryad Road, Cardiff, Wales
Formerly known as Royal Hamadryad Hospital
The Royal Hamadryad Hospital was opened in 1897 to mark Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, replacing the Hamadryad Hospital Ship that had been in service from 1866. Originally to care for seafarers, it then became a hospital for mental illness in the 1970s. With the opening of the new St. David's Hospital in 2002, the Hamadryad was no longer in use, and has now been bought by Holiday Retirement - a firm dealing with luxury retirement homes in a number of places around the UK.
Holiday Retirement have planning consent for the grounds, but it is not clear at present whether this means they will demolish the original building or not.
How to get here:
Bus: Cardiff Buses - Stop on Clarence Road (routes 1/2/8). Walk west from the bus stop until you reach Pomeroy Street (south side), and then follow it to the end. Turn left and the retirement home is just across the street. +
