We have visited St Fagans many times. It is a great place to take visitors. The staff are always happy to help. They have a vast knowledge and are always on hand if you need them. If you have problems walking long distances they have carts available with a guide that will take you around the

Absolutely amazing day out for everyone of all ages. I've visited since a child and whenever I find myself back in Wales or I bring guests this is a spot I always have to bring them to.

We always seem to end up taking visting friends here, it's somewhere you just must see if you are in the area. The displays are great and really make you feel like you are stepping back in time. On a Sunday there is often a farmers market too where you can buy a range of foods to suit any dietary... More

I had a lovely day out at St. Fagan's. It was interesting to be able to wander in and out of the building at your Leisure. I had a chat with one of the guides and found him to be very friendly and informative. Wear your walking shoes, my husband fell at the first bench!

Expect to spend 3-4 hours looking over the... More
