Llanystumdwy

Llanystumdwy information

Lonely Planet review

The village of Llanystumdwy is the boyhood home and final resting place of David Lloyd George, one of Wales' finest ever political statesmen, and the British prime minister from 1916 to 1922. There's a small Lloyd George Museum , which gives an impression of the man and to some extent illustrates the tension between his nationality and position, through photos, posters and personal effects. Highgate, the house he grew up in, is 50m away, and his grave is about 150m away on the other side of the car park.

The turn-off to the village is to be found 1.5 miles west of Criccieth on the A497.
