This has to be one of the most exciting attractions South Wales has to offer. Make sure you allow an entire day to be able to fit everything in. Lots to see and do. Welsh history at its best. Get a feel of bygone days by visiting a Welsh row of cottages through the decades and take a peek in... More

Can't resist a trip on a nice day. Free entry but paid car park oh well can't have everything. Can't help feeling that some of the buildings should have been left in their original places and not had been meddled with by city planners. Yes the Vulcan should still be on Adam Street.

E venue though we live quite near is still somewhere we go as they have new things all the time. If your lucky they may be making bread, we have never quite managed to bring any home as it gets eaten before we leave.

There are a lot of things to see and do at St. Fagans, from wondering around the old buildings, eating hot fresh bread whilst sat on the grass, to taking in the olde worlde shops and trying your hand at the old fashioned carnival sideshows. A great day out for adults and children alike - and it's free entry to... More

This is usually a great place to visit but because there is so much construction work being undertaken a lot of the buildings are not accessible. I look forward to seeing it completed and it'll be better than ever but until then it is rather compromised.
