Terraced gardens of St Fagans castle - National History Museum of Wales, St Fagans
The manor house ("castle") is perched on a steep embankment. The gardens are landscaped according to the topography, with several terraces of hedges and trellises above each other. At the bottom of the embankment, there are four rectangular duck ponds separated by small weirs.
St Fagans National History Museum
In 1946 the Earl of Plymouth donated St Fagans Castle and its surrounding grounds for the establishment of an open-air museum. It opened in 1948, originally as the Welsh Folk Museum, and now comprises over 40 buildings from all around Wales representing different historical periods. It is the most visited heritage attraction in Wales.
