Manager recommends

  • Take the fascinating walk along the marked paths through the old slate quarry, past old mining machinery and buildings. You will sense the history of the industry that used to dominate this region while taking in the breathtaking views across the valley towards Snowdon - there's so much to see on a walking holiday in the area. Originally an old quarrymaster’s house, YHA Llanberis is ideal for seaside breaks, school trips and activity breaks, with stunning views of Snowdon Summit, the surrounding mountains and Padarn Lake and Country Park.
