Spillers is known to many as the 'Oldest Record Shop in the World' and has been part of Cardiff life since 1894. Unique with specialist knowledge and a diverse selection of music on both compact discs and good old vinyl.

Spillers was founded in 1894 by Henry Spiller at its original location was in the Queen’s Arcade, Cardiff, where the shop specialised in the sale of phonographs, wax phonograph cylinders and shellac phonograph discs. In the early 1920s, Henry’s son Edward took over the running of the business and, with the aid of the popular accordionist and band leader, Joe Gregory, sold musical instruments alongside the pre-recorded music. In the late 1940s, Henry moved the shop around the corner to a larger premises on The Hayes, where it happily remained and thrived.

You can now find Spillers in Morgan Arcade after sadly having to move from its well known premises on The Hayes a few years ago.
