St Fagans National History Musem

Saint Fagans, Cardiff CF5 6XB, UK

If you want to have an indoor and outdoor experience while you are in Wales, why not visit St Fagan’s open-air museum located four miles west of Cardiff City Centre. This National History Museum stands in the grounds of the magnificent St Fagan’s Castle, one of Wales finest Elizabethan manor houses, which the Earl of Plymouth donated to the people of Wales in the late 16th century.

You can experience four centuries of history as you stroll through this marvellous house with its original furniture and you will also witness an interesting 19th century embroidered sofa from the Edwinsford Estate that revealed a fascinating story when dismantled. Then after having an insight into the lives of families who once lived there, you could take a stroll through the impressive garden with its beautiful displays, fishponds, fountains, mulberry grove and vinery. And if that is not enough, you can discover the open museum’s fantastic beech woodland and get close to some of the creatures who live there.

Whether it’s a wet or dry day, you’ll definitely have a fantastic time out at this wonderful popular heritage attraction.
