Travelling around Blaenau Ffestiniog
The national park of Snowdonia is one of the most naturally beautiful places in Wales. Right at the heart of Snowdonia, you’ll find the unspoilt gem that is Blaenau Ffestiniog.
Blaenau Ffestiniog grew from a small gathering of cottages into a vibrant town on the back of the slate mining industry.
It’s well worth visiting the town for the chance to explore Llechwedd quarry and experience the life of a Victorian slate miner. You can also take a trip on the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway to Porthmadog and experience Victorian style travel. Arriva buses run from the transport hub in the centre of town to places like Pwllheli and Portmeirion.
