The Lloyd George Museum

Lloyd George Museum
Lloyd George Museum

The items at Lloyd George Museum and Highgate, his childhood home, help us to understand the former Prime Minister's life and times between 1863 and 1945. He as a great statesman - he introduced a pension for the elderly; he was Prime Minister during the First World War; he gave women the vote - but he failed to solve the problems in Ireland.
