Visited here with my husband who is Welsh. It is a very moving place but the large red dragon is fantastic what a memorial! It would have been useful to have some description of where the stones etc came from and what their significance is.

We had to visit the Welsh National Memorial Park as our town had raised the most money to help build it. We absolutely love it! It is positioned perfectly and the dragon is beautiful! Well be back again soon.

This is a beautiful, moving memorial to the Welsh soldiers who fought and died nearby. I felt proud to be Welsh.
