Plas Newydd Llangollen, Historic Houses Llangollen, Denbighshire - Wales where to go, what to see and where to stay in Wales


Hill Street Llangollen Denbighshire Wales
You might have thought the story of two women who ran away together and set up home in Wales would have caused a scandal at the turn of the eighteenth century. Far from it....Lady Eleanor Butler and Miss Sarah Ponsonby captured the imagination of Regency society. They received a stream of visitors to the unpretentious little cottage which, over the years, they transformed into a Gothic fantasy of projecting stained glass and elaborately carved oak. Inside Plas Newydd today, an exhibition including some of their possessions and an audio tour bring their story to vivid life. You can stroll through their gardens and along their riverside walk. And you can take tea, as Wordsworth, Sir Walter Scott and the Duke of Wellington have all done before you. Opening Times (2009) April - October 10am-5pm daily Last recommended admission: 4.15 pm Ticket Prices: Adult - £3.50 Child/OAP - £2.50 Family (2+2) - £10.00
