Welcome to Blaenau Ffestiniog

Although slate mining continues on a small scale, it's the abandoned workings of this once-mighty industry that are now Blaenau's attraction. It's by no means a 'pretty' town, but opportunities to explore the slate caverns or pursue extreme sports make it a great day trip from Porthmadog, via the historic Ffestiniog Railway.
