Off to St Fagan’s Museum! Note that with bus privatisation here a day pass on Cardiff Bus won’t work for the museum because only Eastway go there regularly.
The museum is about 20min from town and occupies a large site.
Almost all the houses had their fires lit, including these ones with no chimneys. It’s a wonder noone was asphyxiated back then.
This had a large library inside, with some current newspapers to read if you wanted to.
There’s also a stately home (St Fagan’s castle) but it’s not open inside.
There is an exhibition but I didn’t find it to be as well done as all the buildings.
I returned to town and headed down the bay. There’s a large film studio for Dr Who, Torchwood, etc, but THE DR WHO MUSEUM IS SHUT for renovation. Damn them.
I went to the Senedd (parliament). It’s very small but free. There’s also a shop called Fabulous Welshcakes. YOU MUST VISIT.
That afternoon my hostess met me in town to see me off, and gave me a bag with some meatloaf, tan square, and a lemon. I checked – it was a lemon. Hmmm.
The night bus to Edinburgh was £63. It stops quite often for 30min breaks, but s comfortable enough.
