“Blaenau Ffestiniog has for as long as anyone can remember been known as "the town that roofed the world". Slate was how Blaenau made its name, and the town is immensely proud of its industrial heritage. From a cluster of farms a bustling town grew, and a number of quarries were opened; one of them, Llechwedd is one of Wales' top visitor attractions, where you can visit to experience life as a Victorian miner, you may also travel like the Victorians on the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway to Porthmadog. The area boasts a range of attractions for everyone.Newly added, Bounce Below , Zip World and amazing off road biking !”
