A thoroughly enjoyable day. The grounds and various gardens are lovely, with plenty of areas to take in the beautiful surroundings while having a picnic. The welsh village with the fresh bakery is a must to purchase the excellent products and the other stores are fascinating. The little cottages through the decades brought so many memories back, it made us... More

Despite the weather - we enjoyed a good 2 hour wander around the site. We didn't get to see everything there but it was interesting to see what life was like years ago. Brilliant that it was free. Would go again.

St Fagans is just like stepping out of a time machine, with buildings dismantled from many locations across the country and reassembled brick by brick in the grounds of this wonderful area near Cardiff. Learn about the buildings, or just go for a peaceful walk in and around the surrounding woodland.

This place is amazing and a must to visit. We were astounded that it is free, you just pay £3.50 for the car park. There is a lovely little cafe on site and a gift shop. We spent the whole day there and really had a nice day. It is a Beamish type place but without the expense. Well done

A fantastic place for young and old alike, a trip down memeory lane and was great to see my parents faces remembering some of the items in the row of cottages which take you through the last hundred years. Plenty to see and do. Plan it for a fair weather day, otherwise it can be a drag walking around in... More

I have visited St Fagans many times, with children young and old, and there is always something new to see. (They are currently shifting things around a little - building a new learning centre, I think. So things might be a little disrupted for a while.)
