Town Information

Llanberis is a village in Gwynedd, north-west Wales, on the southern bank of the lake Llyn Padarn and at the foot of Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales. It is very popular for outdoor activities such as walking, climbing, mountaineering, mountain biking and riding, as well as watersports. The village is often a starting point for ascents of Snowdon as the Llanberis Path begins in the village, which is the longest but least strenuous route to the summit. The international fell race known as the Snowdon Race to the summit of Snowdon begins in the village. It is also home of the Slateman Triathlon in early summer each year, and is start and finish point of the Snowdonia Marathon. The ruins of Dolbadarn Castle stand above the village. The 13th century fortress is a grade I listed building. The churches St Padarn are both Grade II listed buildings, as is the chapel of Capel Coch. Other places of interest in and near the village include the National Slate Museum, Llyn Padam Country Park and Electric Mountain / Dinorwig Power Station. The heritage Snowdon Mountain Railway and Llanberis Lake Railway both have stations in the town, and are popular tourist attractions.
