Last week I decided it would be a good idea to get off my little single bed in my cramped shared house room and go outside. I think that any time you’re in a negative situation or even one that isn’t necessarily making you happy, the best thing to do it just go outside and find something to do, even if that something is just walking breathing fresh air.
So I went, and not long after arriving remembered it was still a couple of days off the end of the summer holidays and there were kids…everywhere! You couldn’t take a step without almost being rugby tackled to the ground by squealing siblings. But even so, I had a good time, I took some photos, had a coffee, and overall the day wasn’t too bad.
I’m sure when it’s quieter (just a personal preference) St Fagans is a great place to visit. They’ve recently refurbished their main reception building and it all looks really modern and clean, and all the staff are welcoming and polite. It was a lot bigger than I remember and it was quite nice to have the whole day to just wander and get lost in the historical buildings and flower gardens. Everything is beautifully presented, I love how all the staff seemed to primarily speak Welsh, and there were people everywhere to tell you stories of the history, the weather was lovely and there was a fun fair next to the old-fashioned shops. The perfect day out, I can see why so many families chose to take their kids there…
Here’s some pics!
