Every local in Wales would recommend visiting the St Fagans National History Museum in Cardiff, Wales in a heartbeat. And the interesting thing about this is that it doesn’t sound, look, or feel like a museum at all. It’s one of those places you could easily mistake as your house in your past Celtic life. It’s Wales’ most admired heritage attraction and I couldn’t agree more.

The St Fagans has been opened to the public since November 1948. It’s a musuem, a castle, and a garden, which is also in fact a late 16th-century manor house donated to the people of Wales by the Earl of Plymouth. The place is one of United Kingdom’s top ten free recommended attractions by non-other than Trip Advisor, and it sure deserves the spot it has on the list.

What will really blow your minds out is the beautiful garden displays surrounding the Castle. It includes a 1902 Italian garden, a thyme garden, fish ponds, fountains, a mulberry grove, vinery and an exquisite Rosery adding the right storybook kind of illustration to the grounds. You can just stitch yourself to the grounds and forget all the problems in the world. Spellbinding, yes?

This place is recommended for high class, slow paced, senior friendly kind of all day escapade. It’s a unique kind of culture emersion, one that the Queen of England and the Duke of the forgotten past would be so fond of.
