The National Wool Museum is a great activity for a rainy day. Free entry (though a donation is suggested) and ample on site parking so nothing to complain about in that respect. All the exhibits are indoors, and you can see the various machines in...More

As part of the Welsh National Museum network there is no admission charge although donations are permitted, I'm sure. It was very interesting and gave me an insight as to why my elderly relatives always chose to wear flannel shirts. The cafeteria and shop were...More
