Step back in time
Take a trip back in time and explore Wales through the ages with a trip to St Fagans National History Museum. More than 40 original buildings from Celtic times to the present have been re-erected in the grounds of St Fagans Castle, including a farm, medieval chapel and Workmen’s institute. There’s also a row of ironworkers’ houses that show how people lived from 1805 to 1985. Make sure to stop by the bakery for a cheesy bun. At Cosmeston Lakes Country Park, you can find out what life was like in the middle ages at the reconstructed 14th century medieval village, while at Blaenavon in the South Wales Valleys, you can learn about South Wales’s industrial heritage. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Blaenavon is home to an ironworks and heritage railway, as well as the Big Pit National Coal Museum where you can go 300-foot underground and tour a coal mine.
