Welcome to Llanberis


Llanberis originally housed workers from the Dinorwig slate quarry, and its massive waste tips are hard to miss. While tourism is the cornerstone of life these days, the town hasn't abandoned its industrial roots. Dinorwig, which once boasted the world's largest artificial cavern, 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.
