First time back in 20 years and it's still a great place to visit. OK needs a few quid spending here and there but generally great. Wear stout shoes as there is quite a lot of walking to do to make the most of it...More

An amazing place that provides an insight into the social history of Wales. The buildings have been identified from across Wales, dismantled and then lovingly re-built on this site. The re-siting of the buildings has been well done and they all seem to fit naturally...More

Set in lovely countryside just outside of Cardiff, St Fagans chronicals Welsh history featuring lifestyle, culture, and architecture with many farm buildings and traditional cottages. It's a bargain to get in at £5 per car to park, that's it. A great day out.

Visited many times, this time to see the food festival which was great. The historical buildings are fabulous, as is the castle, but the star of the show for me has to be the extensive gardens and ponds. Utterly beautiful. My only negative about this...More
