A superb place. Wife and took over two hours to wander round and just lived the historic buildings. And it's free, although £2.30 for a bottle of coke was a bit steep. The shop was a wee bit disappointing as well, very little to offer...More

Not dull in the slightest! St. Fagans, as I've told people since visiting, is the best museum I have ever set foot in (I cannot stress this enough). It's a history buffs dream come true. The exhibits are interactive with lots of walking, history, and...More

Well it's free so I can't complain about the entrance fee but £5 to park your car is far too much given there's no discount for time spent; £1 per hour would make far more sense. Once inside the vast entrance hall, which was virtually...More
