We visited Nantgarw China Works Museum on a beautiful sunny day. It was free to look around and we were greeted by two very helpful individuals. Trevor who spent most time with us had been working there over 20 years and was full of knowledge. Although we didn't stop for a hot drink there were facilities and toilets available too. A small free car park was just outside but I don't think it would get too busy. Interesting visit.

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the museum and to find out about Nantgarw's history. There are some significant old buildings on site together with a modern day small pottery. Welcome cup of tea and Welsh Cakes.

The museum is run by knowledgeable volunteers who are anxious to keep alive the memory of the short-lived but top quality china works. Great value afternoon teas.

Had a fantastic visit here, the volunteers were very knowledgeable and friendly. The new tea rooms are lovely serving cakes and teas/coffees (donation only). Giving generously will help to keep the museum open.
