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.
