 The Lloyd George Museum in Llanystumdwy has been awarded with a Trip Advisor certificate of excellence for its high rating reviews from visitors.

 

The Lloyd George Museum which is dedicated to the former Prime Minister has seen a rise in interest and visitors which led to the award from the popular online review site.

 

Nest Thomas, Principal Officer for Museums and the Arts for Gwynedd Council said: “Online sites such as Trip Advisor are very influential tools in tourism today. Reviews from fellow visitors are a more trusted sources of information, so to be awarded a certificate of excellence by the visitors is a very important accolade for the museum.”

 

Councillor Mandy Williams-Davies, Gwynedd Council Cabinet Member with responsibility for museums added: “The Lloyd George Museum tells the story of the statesman’s life, from his upbringing in the village of Llanystumdwy. Visitors can pay a visit to Highgate, the house where Lloyd George spent his childhood years and follow the journey of his political career from a young MP, on to the front bench in the House of Commons onto his term in No. 10 Downing Street from 1916, until his death in 1945.

 

“Securing recognition on the Trip Advisor website shows that there’s something for everyone who is interested in our history at the museum and I would encourage anyone to go along when it reopens for the season.”

 

Trip Advisor is an online international site which focuses on attractions, hotels, restaurants, shops and cafes and allows visitors to rate their experience wherever they visit. It is popular with the public as it offers candid reviews and photos uploaded by the visitors, showing establishments at their very best – and worst.

 

The Lloyd George Museum re-opens its doors to the public in time for the Easter holidays 2015. For more information about the museum, go to www.gwynedd.gov.uk/museums or phone 01766 522071.
