St Fagans National Museum of History Cardiff 4.0 mi away

It was brilliant to be able to experience the buildings and living conditions from various ages in history up close, so much better than many museums we've been to.
I have been to all of these open air museums from Beamish in the North down to St Fagans in the South and the sheer size and diversity of this one makes it the best.

It is one of the largest privately owned museums of retail and farming history in the UK and takes you on a lovely nostalgic trip down memory lane with background music from the era to add to the experience.
The museum benefits from a wonderful cafe with very generous, tasty and reasonably priced meals, and a pleasant lack of commercialism when it comes to shopping!
