St. Fagans National Museum of History showcases historic buildings relocated from across Wales, saved from their original location as many had become derelict or planned to be torn down.
The museum sits in a beautiful 100 acre parkland, and is free to everyone. The only money you will have to pay is for the car park (£5) which only accept coins. St Fagans is dog friendly and you will see many other pups enjoying their walk, as well as families and children on school trips.
Important things you need to know before you go with your pup:
Despite these restrictions, St Fagans is still hugely popular with dog walkers and the grounds are amazing. We spent about 6 hours there and managed to visit about 3/4 of the historic buildings and grounds.
The historic buildings are a real treat to see all in one place, they have a great variety, from shops, farms, mills to a tannery and chapels. Our favourite was the row of miners’ cottages and gardens, where each cottage was frozen in time in a certain era, depicting typical living of bygone days up to the 1960s.
After our day out (in autumn), we needed to warm ourselves up and couldn’t wait for a cup of tea, so we drove to nearby The Plymouth Arms which is dog friendly in the bar area. The pub is cosy, friendly and it was the perfect way to warm up after being outside all day.
