The National Slate Museum is sited in the Victorian workshops built in the shadow of Elidir mountain, site of the vast Dinorwig quarry. Here you can travel into the past of an industry and a way of life that has chiselled itself into the very being of this country. The Workshops and Buildings are designed as though quarry men and engineers have just put down their tools and left the courtyard for home, while an array of Talks and Demonstrations including slate-splitting give you a real insight into quarry life. Following this you will drive via the stunning Pen-Y-Pass to Betws-y-Coed for an opportunity to visit the station café or sit by the River Llugwy and Pont-y-Pair bridge with an ice cream.
