Llechwedd Slate Caverns online: information and bookings

Llechwedd Slate Caverns is the most popular visitor attraction in North Wales.

Boarding a train in a corner of the original slate slabbing mill of 1852, visitors now ride into an 1846 tunnel, hauled by battery-electric locomotive. Entering through the side of the mountain this journey into the early Victorian past remains on the level, and traverses some spectacular caverns.

Victorian Village
Pentre Llechwedd, meaning Llechwedd Village, was one of two residential communities which grew amid the surface workings of the mine. The last residents left during the 1970s.

The Miners Arms
The Miners' Arms has long been a favourite refreshment stop for travellers on the A470 Llandudno-Cardiff trunk road through the Welsh heartland.
