Really enjoyed an afternoon looking around the court house, learning about Welsh law and exploring different areas of the building. Well wort a look.
Another place that you need to invest time in. It is packed full of very interesting information about the administration of justice in rural Wales up to the early part of the 20th century. Our only caveat was that it looked as though it could do with some refurbishment. Nevertheless, well worth a visit
A visit to the courthouse was fascinating with the free audio guide giving you a detailed commentary of the history of the building and the people who were unfortunate enough to find themselves in the dock, walking through courtroom and the dock you get a real feel of what it must have been like.

Nice little hand held audio tour. Worth the money! Older children would especially enjoy (you can make them stand in the dock if you're feeling mean!)
A must for anybody with a passion for social history and/or an appreciation for Charles Dickens, who regularly sat in the press box and wrote of the proceedings been borne out in the walls of the historic courtroom and judges chambers.
