The proprietor, Jen Jones, is a wealth of information. She has an extensive collection of Welsh quilts. The center will only be open for another year and then she is closing. Get there while you can.

Jen Jones, the most well-known expert on Welsh quilts has done such an amazing job here. But hurry--this is the last season. SO sad!!!

An idea of what you can do on wet day in South Wales. Visited this museum on a wet day in November, not the biggest museum to visit but of a very high quality exhibit. (I don't think you would see as much high quality...More
