Fodor's Review

Topped by a distinctive redbrick clock tower, the Victorian Gothic Pierhead contains a good exhibition on Welsh history, including a few artifacts relating to the medieval struggle for independence from England. They have an occasional but eclectic program of public events here, including art exhibitions, talks, and debates; call or check the website for the upcoming schedule.
