Cant a Mil is an independent Welsh bookshop in Cardiff (the Heath area) in South Wales. Our business started in June 2014 and since then we have grown steadily and have attracted a growing number of loyal customers. We have a comprehensive stock for children, adults and Welsh learners in the shop as well as here on our website.

You may have noticed the recent change of name! We are now Cant a Mil to reflect our greater emphasis on books. We have over 3000 titles in stock (and that’s just new books) so we felt it was time to give books a greater share of the shop space and show them off properly.

Need a card?

We are regularly complimented on our great choice of contemporary Welsh greetings cards and we are delighted to be able to support card designers from Cardiff and across Wales.

Gifts from Wales

In addition we have a range of gift ideas for friends and family, from personalised name badges to prints to vintage Welsh tapestry coats.

Second-hand books

At the back of the shop we also have a stock of second-hand Welsh language books. If you’re searching for a particular title published in the last few months or up to a couple of hundred years ago do please get in touch! You can contact us by email or phone and of course, we are always happy to post books to you.

Come and find us!

You will find our shop on Whitchurch Road in Cardiff, next door to the Post Office. If you’re coming by bus (Numbers 8, 9 or 35) ask for ‘Companies House’ and you will see us directly opposite. We look forward to welcoming you to Cant a Mil, our lovely Welsh bookshop in Cardiff.
