Llechwedd Slate Caverns.

Llechwedd Slate Caverns of Blaenau Ffestiniog is part of a living, working slate mine still being worked to this day by Greaves Welsh Slate - since 1836.

We offer 2 unique underground tours that take you deep underground to explore the world of the Victorian slate miner. The temperature underground is an ambient 54F making the caverns ideal for a family day out - come rain or shine.

Plenty of all year surface facilities to enjoy - shop, cafe, slate workshop (with daily demonstrations) plus the Victorian Village (April-September) with its traditional tavern and old fashioned sweet shop.

The Deep Mine Tour:

Descend deep underground and be guided on foot via ten "sound and light" sequences.

Experience the unforgettable beauty of the underground lake as the story of the slate miner's life unfolds.

The Miners' Tramway Tour:

Ride on a train into a network of spectacular cathedral high manmade chambers.

This is a guided tour and at various points you will learn of the skills needed to extract slate, and to experience for yourself the sights and sounds of late nineteenth century mining conditions.

Llechwedd Victorian Village

Visit the Slate Workshop located in the Old Mill, where Housenames/numbers are made to order.

Try some local ale at the Miners' Arms and enjoy the magnificent view from the Beer Garden.

Ffestin's sweet shop is a must. Wall to wall jars of traditional sweets and old fashioned favourites.

Visit the village Bank and exchange some new money for old. We have our own coins that can be spent anywhere in the village or kept as a souvenir of your visit to Llechwedd.

The Victorian Village is open from March to October - the Slate Workshop is open throughout the year.
