Here’s the second castle I visited last week (I haven’t been anywhere this week the weather’s been atrocious.) It is an Elizabethan Mansion originally built in the sixteenth century but on the site of an earlier Norman castle. The Earls of Plymouth spent a lot of time here before they donated it to the people of Wales in the 1940s. It now forms the centre of the Museum of Welsh Life at St Fagans just on the outskirts of Cardiff. It is a magical place with original historic buildings from all centuries and donated by people from all over Wales. You can see an example of the grounds on the page above. I will show you a real castle next week.
