Explore the Llanfair Slate Caverns

These tunnels and caverns were all man made over 100 years ago – with nothing but a candle for lighting. Descend Jacobs ladder and wander through the tunnels and chambers, and look for the old drilling holes, and the likeness of a human face in the mighty no 6 cavern. As you emerge from the caverns, you face the breathtaking view of Cardigan Bay, from the Preseli mountains in the south to the Lleyn peninsular. Look down at Shell Island and the Artro estuary, and at low tide trace the fourteen mile long natural causeway of St Patrick.

Discover Harlech Castle

A true icon of Harlech, the medieval castle has been keeping a watchful eye throughout the years from the cliff face it is perched upon. The song ‘Men of Harlech’ is said to describe the siege that took place here during the War of the Roses, in which a handful of men clashed with an army of thousands. Built by King Edward in 13th century for a mere £8,190, Harlech castle fits in perfectly with it’s surroundings.
