Overview

The Lloyd George museum is situated in the heart of Llanystumdwy, the village where Lloyd George was brought up as a child. The museum itself tells the story of his life, from humble beginnings, to becoming one of the greatest British statesmen of the twentieth century. He is known as the man who; taxed the rich to help the poor, gave women the vote, introduced National Insurance and Old Age Pensions, led the country to victory during the First World War, and was instrumental during the peace talks at Versailles.Visitors can also step back in time and visit the Victorian cottage Highgate, his boyhood home, and his Uncle's shoemaker's workshop next door, which is joined to the Museum by a footpath through a Victorian Cottage garden.His grave is also located in the village, just a short walk up the drive from the Museum, he is buried in the woods above the river Dwyfor. We advise visitors that they may need at least an hour and a half for their visit, as there is the Museum itself to see, the cottage Highgate, and also a half hour film summarising his life and achievements.

We'd heard of David LLoyd George, one of England's prime ministers of course, but this museum really filled in all the gaps in our knowledge. What a find in this tiny little village. We learnt about his early domestic life in the cottage he was...More

Driven past village many times and always promised ourselves that we'd call in to museum. So much more than we'd imagined that we're planning a return visit as we didn't have the time to do it justice. The video is a must as it clearly...More
