Welcome to Llanberis

Llanberis originally housed workers from the Dinorwig slate quarry; the massive waste tips are hard to miss. While tourism is the cornerstone of life these days, the town proudly wears its industrial heritage on its sleeve. Dinorwig, which once boasted the largest artificial cavern in the world, is now part of Europe's biggest pumped-storage power station. Some of the old quarry workshops have been reincarnated as a slate-industry museum, and the narrow-gauge railway that once hauled slate to the coast now transports excited toddlers along Llyn Padarn.
