Discover the magical story of Meirion through the storytelling chairs. The story itself lasts about an hour, but the journey will be longer. There are five parts to the story to correspond with the five special storytelling chairs in Harlech. But you do not have to visit all five chairs in order to enjoy the story. You can just walk part of the journey and still listen to the whole story. The choice is yours.
If you are to visit all five story chairs the journey is about 2 miles. Harlech means "on a slope" or "beautiful slope", so the clue is in the name - there are steep hills between the top and lower parts of the town. The majority of the journey is on tarmac but there are two paths which include rough and steep terrain and one sandy path. You are in charge of how you experience your journey.
You can walk half the route and return to experience the rest on another day. You can walk a completely different path. To find the location of any of our chairs, just click the 'Get Directions' links
