Travel Plan for St Fagans

This week is Wales Sustainability Week – a perfect time to launch St Fagans: National History Museum Travel Plan!

We are the first national museum in Wales to launch a Travel Plan, which is all about promoting sustainable travel for both visitors and staff.  This Travel Plan will ensure options for travelling by public transport, bicycle and walking are expanded and promoted. 

The public transport links to the Museum have greatly improved in recent years.  The local service bus from the city centre stops on-site directly outside the main visitor entrance.  Go to our Planning Your Visit section where you can use the Traveline Cymru journey planner tool to find out how you can visit us by public transport.

Our new shuttle bus service travels everyday between the main entrance of National Museum Cardiff and St Fagans.  It costs £3 return or £1.50 single.  Why not make a day of it and visit the two museums?  The shuttle bus timetable is on our website.

If you are feeling more energetic, the main cycle route to the Museum from Cardiff city centre is via the Ely Trail. The signposted section from Fairwater is traffic-free and follows a pleasant riverside route.  Sheltered, secure cycle parking is available for visitors outside the main entrance.  Lockers are available on request.
