Lloyd George Museum, Llanystumdwy, Llŷn Peninsula

Love to learn about the local history and about the people who lived in the places you visit? The Lloyd George Museum celebrates the life and times of Welshman David Lloyd George, who became the Prime Minister of the UK.

The perfect wet weather activity, situated in the picturesque village of Llanystumdwy, the museum site also includes his childhood cottage (Highgate), a recreated shoemakers’ workshop and Victorian gardens. You’ll find plenty to see and read, and we can’t forget about the amazing talking head!


David Lloyd George lived from 1863-1945. The museum and Highgate (his childhood home) promote awareness of the achievements of this great Welshman. 

This cottage bred boy went on to become prime minister (1916 to 1922) during World War I. His cottage and its village shoemakers’ workshop have been carefully recreated to show what it would have been like when he lived there between 1864-1880. 

There’s a fantastic unique selection of objects displayed including, medals awards, paintings, pictures, original desks and much more! Informative films and a talking head (yes, a talking head) ensure you make the most out of your visit. Interesting, enjoyable and educational - a visit to the Lloyd George Museum is a great way to learn more about one of North Wales’ local unsung heroes. 

Outside you can enjoy the picture perfect Victorian cottage garden and take a stroll near to the river Dwyfor to see his grave.
