Spend a day here....a free trip into the past! Walk around beautiful countryside where actual original buildings from our history have been re-assembled and dotted around with loving care and attention to detail. Old houses, farms, shops, mills, factories, churches, chapels, schools and so many more....just amazing to have it all in one beautiful area! Something of interest for all... More

If you come to Cardiff you simply have to visit the national history museum. If the word museum puts you off then please don't let it.

To do this justice it will take a full day. There are a host of reconstructed cottages farmhouses and other buildings originally built up to 500 years ago. The shops and village green were used in a Doctor Who story set in 1913. One of the best reconstructions are a row of workmanship cottages, showing how they changed over 100... More

A great educational day out, purchase the guide book £3.00 allthough slightly inaccurate a must to find your way around. Each day different activities, small childrens funfare, ice cream tea and coffee sold around the site, tractor and trailer rides avaliable, very helpful staff. If it's raining go well prepared. enjoy and I hope this helps
