After making the most of the complementary breakfast and checking out of our hotel we made our way to St Fagan's Museum of Welsh Life. the museum is situated in the ground of the 16th century St Fagans castle and it the 1940s it was donated to the people of Wales by the Earl of Plymouth and opened as a museum a couple of years later.
It contains buildings from around Wales that have been carefully pulled down and then reconstructed in the 100 acres of parkland. The buildings date from a Celtic Village, right through to an Edwardian village. The gardens of the castle have also been beautifully restored to their former glory and the museum provides spaces for traditional craftspeople, including weavers and saddlemakers, to ply their trade.
More Welshcakes and a few souvenirs later we made our way back to the city by bus, passing suddenly from a rural setting to suburbia, in order to catch our relaxing and not at all stressful train back to London, after a sunny and fabulous weekend.
