Overview

More
The Lloyd George museum is situated in the heart of Llanystumdwy, the village where Lloyd George was brought up as a child. The museum itself tells the story of his life, from humble beginnings, to becoming one of the greatest British statesmen of the twentieth century. He is known as the man who; taxed the rich to help the poor, gave women the vote, introduced National Insurance and Old Age Pensions, led the country to victory during the First World War, and was instrumental during the peace talks at Versailles.Visitors can also step back in time and visit the Victorian cottage Highgate, his boyhood home, and his Uncle's shoemaker's workshop next door, which is joined to the Museum by a footpath through a Victorian Cottage garden.His grave is also located in the village, just a short walk up the drive from the Museum, he is buried in the woods above the river Dwyfor. We advise visitors that they may need at least an hour and a half for their visit, as there is the Museum itself to see, the cottage Highgate, and also a half hour film summarising his life and achievements.

This museum provides an absorbing account of the life and achievements of one of our greatest politicians.

A very small museum, that tells a big story. Well laid out and informative. The staff seemed too laid back. The house next door where Lloyd George lived with his Uncle, and part of the ticket price, was locked and had to ask for it...More
