Lloyd George Museum
Average duration: 1 hr
The Lloyd George Museum on the Llŷn Peninsula tells the inspirational story of the boy, from the small village of Llanystumdwy, that became the Prime Minister during WW1. A reformer who changed all of our lives by introducing fundamental social reforms like National Insurance and the State Pension.
Visit the cottage in Llanystumdwy where Lloyd George grew up, restored to the time when he lived there, between 1864-1880. The Museum theatre plays a film of his career, where you can watch him come to life through a “talking head”.
Explore unique collections, including the first pension issued, a draft copy of the World War I peace treaty, period costumes and much more. There is also a Victorian classroom where you can experience a taste of the strict lessons of the time.
Outside you can enjoy the pretty Victorian garden and take a stroll to Lloyd George’s grave near the river Dwyfor.
Open from Easter to October and easy to reach from Porthmadog and Pwllheli on the No3 bus route. The museum was described as a “Hidden Gem” by Visit Wales, thanks to its unique artefacts and interpretation. An all-weather heritage attraction that’s not to be missed.
