Capital City Of Wales
A city for the 21st century
Located in Cardiff City Centre, Howells joins the wider redevelopment of the welsh capital, along with Saint David’s II, Central Square and Central Quay. The core vision for Howells is to retain, re-purpose and regenerate the heart of the city and be the catalyst for further regeneration along St Mary Street.

A Rich History
Over 150 years in the making
Howells has had a rich history since James Howell first established his furnishing and drapery store on the site back in 1867. Over the years several phases of development added to the site, which eventually became a House of Fraser department store in 1972.
