About an hours drive from Garreg Goch Caravan Park.



Llechwedd Slate Caverns


Deep in the mountains of Snowdonia, a way of life which built communities and shaped the feel of the world as we know it is waiting to be discovered!

The story of slate goes back 500 million years and was first used y the Romans in the 1st Century AD. But, it was the Industrial Revolution which saw the demand in slate rise.  At it's peak the slate industry in Wales employed around 17,000 men and by the end of the 19th Century, Wales was extracting half a million tonnes of slate a year.

There are three different tours you can do:

Deep mine tour:  Travel back in time 160 years as you travel 500 feet underground.  Extraordinary light projections, enhanced reality technology and explosive special effects will transport you to another time and place.

Quarry Explorer: Explore the formidable slate mountains with a thrilling guided adventure in a 4x4 military truck.  It will take you on a journey to the top of the man made summits: an extreme landscape 1400ft above sea level.  You will learn about how the landscape was formed and why it is now a subject of a UNESCO World Heritage status bid.

Slate Workshop Tours: Learn how Llechwedd distributed slate worldwide in the 1800's and hear all about the working social history of the Quarry workers.  You will see how they used to hand split the slate and you can even have a go yourself!

Llechwedd Slate Cavarns are about a 30 minute drive from Garreg Goch Caravan Park.



Anglesey Sea Zoo


A unique aquarium with over 40 tanks displaying the best of British marine wildlife.  Don't expect to see large sharks, tropical fish or sea turtles - instead you'll find fascinating creatures from around the coasts of the uk, such as octopus, lobsters, seahorses, scuttlefish and catsharks!

You'll learn about the British marine habitats and the research and conservation work which is helping to save them.

Open Monday to Sunday 10am- 4.45pm(last entry).
All tickets are valid for 6 days after purchase so you can keep going back!

About an hour's drive from Garreg Goch Caravan Park.

Are you holidaying here with us at Garreg Goch this year and bringing your four legged friend with you?  Then have a look at these fantastic places you can go where you can take your furry friend with you!

Beddgelert and Gelert's Grave

The beautiful village of Beddgelert lies deep in the heart of Snowdonia.  Here you can take a walk along the banks of the Glaslyn lake and discover Beddgelert's most famous historical feature.  Gelert's Grave.  Welsh legend speaks of Gelert, the great and faithful hound to the Welsh Prince Llewlyn the Great.  The legend goes that the Prince came back one day from hunting to find his faithful hound covered in blood and his son's cot empty.  Assuming the worst, the Prince slayed Gelert, only to discover after the dead body of a wolf, but his son was safe and unharmed.  The Prince never smiled again, and buried faithful Gelert in this beautiful spot.

A stunning place to take your four faithful hound for a fabulous walk in Snowdonia.

Set in the beautiful Conway Valley, the Water Garden's has something to offer everyone.  There is a Nature Trail for you to follow, where you will come across all sorts of fantastic woodland animals.  You can even feed some of them too!  Dogs are welcome on the trail, but must be kept on a lead and not disturb the animals.  There is an Aquatic centre which houses over 100 species of fish, there is also an area for turtles and tortoise, and an area that specialises in all your aquatic needs!


Greenwood Forest Park

If you're looking to take the kids somewhere to run off some energy, why not head out to Greenwood Forest Park.  The dog can come too, but must be kept on a lead.  The park is home to the world's only people powered rollercoaster!  There's plenty to do to keep the kids entertianed.  They can even have a go at archery!


Llanberis Lake Railway

Jump on board the little train that takes you on a five mile journey round Lake Padarn, right in the middle of Snowdonia.  The journey takes you past the 13th Century Dolbadarn Castle and past Llanberis' twin lakes.  From Llanberis the train runs non-stop through the Padarn Country Park, joining the 1845 slate railway route giving you stunning views of Snowdon.  Dogs are allowed on the train for a small charge.



When you get back to site, why not make use of our Doggy Shower, so you can wash them off before taking them back to your pet friendly caravan!
