Where Heritage and Adventure combine
Llechwedd Slate Caverns make a great day out- you can spend a whole day here travelling deep into our spectacular Mine or high into the Quarry with breathtaking views across Snowdonia.
We have a gift shop, a slate workshop where you can buy products made with slate from our own Quarry, a large café, Victorian coffee shop with excellent cakes, the Quarrymans Arms pub for locally brewed beer and a grill for sunny days where you can buy a burger.
The site is also home to our pals at Zip World with amazing zip lines and the world famous Bounce Below and to Antur Stiniog with some of the scariest downhill bike tracks in Britain.
Our Amazing new Deep Mine Tour launched this Easter
We look forward to sharing this amazing experience with you
Buried deep under the mountains of Snowdonia lies an extraordinary story: it's a rock revolution that shaped the look and feel of the world as we know it. A way of life which built communities and defined generations of families in North Wales.
The NEW deep mine tour at Llechwedd tells the story of the men who built this incredible industry which roofed the world. Experienced from the point of view of the mine workers, the tour uses cutting-edge enhanced reality technology to tell the story of their blood and guts, their determination and resilience, their risk and endeavour.
It also tells us a great deal about how our mining forefathers lived, the importance to them of family, friendship and community, and how their lives have shaped our own - and still do.
Join us for an unforgettable off road adventure
How do you fancy exploring our formidable slate mountains with a thrilling guided adventure in a 4 x 4 truck? Grab hold and join us on a 1.5 hour journey to the top of our man-made summits: an extreme landscape 1400ft above sea level.
Our quarry explorer is an off road adventure that will take you right into the heart of Llechwedd's man-made mountains. Travelling in a military 4 x 4 truck you'll drive up high to the top of the quarry and into some of the massive craters we made by blasting the tops off our hundred-year-old caverns.
You'll learn more about how this amazing landscape was formed, and why it is now the subject of a UNESCO World Heritage Status bid. You'll take in views of North Wales like no other and have the opportunity to snap some great photographs and there is £20 each week to WIN for the best photograph loaded onto Facebook.
