Lloyd George Museum

portmeirion-1

Discover the life and times of Lloyd George the cottage bred boy who became prime minister during World War I.

He grew up in Highgate cottage in the picturesque village of Llanystumdwy. The cottage, with its village shoemakers’ workshop, has been recreated as it would have been when he lived there between 1864-1880. In the Museum you can enjoy the film on his life in the theatre, see Lloyd George come to life through the “talking head”, and explore the unique collections including the first pension issued, a draft copy of the World War I peace treaty, costumes and much more. There is also a Victorian classroom which takes you back to the strict lessons of the time. Outside you can enjoy the pretty Victorian garden and take a stroll to see Lloyd George’s grave near the river Dwyfor.
