Lloyd George Museum - front of building

description

'The aim of the Lloyd George Museum and Highgate his boyhood home is to interpret the life and times of David Lloyd George 1863-1945 by collecting, caring for and displaying items relating to him and to develop the Museum and Highgate as a worthy centre to commemorate one of the greatest statesmen of the twentieth century and as a focus for information and research that will promote world wide awareness of his achievements.'

Discover the life and times of David Lloyd George in the Museum and Highgate, his boyhood home. Lloyd George was one of the greatest statesmen of the twentieth century - he introduced the old age pension, he led the country as Prime Minister during World War I and he gave women the vote - but failed to solve the Irish question.

In the Museum you can see the unique display of objects, a film about his life, the astonishing 'talking head', a Victorian schoolroom, library, an internet access point and shop have been opened. Highgate has been recreated as it was when Lloyd George lived there between 1864-1880 as well as his uncle's shoemaking workshop. You can also enjoy the Victorian cottage garden.
