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.

I'm biased, Lloyd George is a hero of mine, and I've wanted to visit for years. It didn't disappoint! There's wonderful information about his life, his achievements, his relationships, and so much more.

The museum is well worth a visit, it is full of the usual artefacts such as newspaper cuttings and medals however it really does show all the details of his life. There is a 10 minute video which is worth a watch and for children...More

I had a fascinating hour today in this old-style little museum. I can't say I'm a fan of Lloyd George, other than knowing a little about him from A level history, but the museum was a really interesting overview of not just the man but...More
