Explore Welsh history at St Fagans, Welsh National History Museum and grounds.

  • Jan 4, 2014 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Open to the public since 1 November 1948, this museum stands in the grounds of the magnificent St Fagans Castle and gardens, a late 16th-century manor house donated to the people of Wales by the Earl of Plymouth. We will meet by the visitor centre at 11am. Please put comments on this site if you would like a lift from Bristol. (Bridge toll fees £6.20 a contribution to drivers would be welcome) Driving from North Bristol takes about 50 mins/ 45 miles.

During the last fifty years over forty original buildings from different historical periods have been re-erected in the 100-acre parkland, among them houses, a farm, a school, a chapel and a splendid Workmen's Institute.

Traditional crafts and activities bring St Fagans alive, in workshops where craftsmen still demonstrate their traditional skills. Their produce is usually on sale. Read more stories about our collections on our Rhagor website.

Native breeds of livestock can be seen in the fields and farmyards, and demonstrations of farming tasks take place daily. Visitors gain an insight into the rich heritage and culture of Wales, and the Welsh language can be heard in daily use amongst craftsmen and interpreters.

    Mel has kindly offered me a lift as the last space in his car - so I am 'sorted'.
    Looking forward to it.
