The Hub was the main base of operations for Torchwood Three, analogous to Torchwood One's Torchwood Tower and Torchwood Two's office in Glasgow. The Hub was located directly under Roald Dahl Plass in central Cardiff, also the location of the Cardiff rift. The Hub was connected to the rest of the Torchwood Institute via organic computer.[source needed]

The Hub was built in and around the remains of a Victorian water pumping station. The lowest level of the central area was therefore several inches deep in water and usually hosted a colony of mosquitos in the Summer months. (PROSE: Slow Decay) This basin of water rose and fell with the tide, sometimes trapping fish, including, on one occasion, a bream. (PROSE: Another Life)

Features Edit

After being seriously damaged in an explosion, (TV: End of Days) the main area of the Hub underwent some remodelling, but remained basically the same. (TV: Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang) It experienced more damage when the Earth was relocated to the Medusa Cascade. (TV: The Stolen Earth)

Following the destruction of the Hub during the 456 incident, Gwen Cooper was able to retrieve Harkness' vortex manipulator from the wreckage. (TV: Children of Earth: Day One, Day Two, Day Five) Angelo Colasanto's men were able to salvage a null field generator. (TV: End of the Road)

By 2011, Roald Dahl Plass had been rebuilt — Gwen, Jack, and Rex Matheson visited the site prior to Jack and Gwen's rendition to the US, but all signs of the Torchwood Hub had disappeared. (TV: The New World)

By 2017 the reestablished Torchwood team had moved back into the ruins of the Hub. The invisible lift moved much faster than it was supposed to, with St John Colchester describing it as a "death trap" and commenting that the team should be wearing hard hats at all times due to the Hub's damaged state. The Hub's power was being stolen from a local fusion restaurant. (AUDIO: Changes Everything)
