Great walk up from the car park (which is not free) through the trees to the Quarry Hospital, a glimps into the past and very informative.

We visited here after visiting the Slate Museum. Unfortunately the weather was AWFUL! So we got a good soaking during the walk here. The building itself is very well cared for and there are some great artifacts of medical equipment from dawn of the 20th century. Good to visit to finish off a day in Llanberis.

We visited as a group mainly because one of our sons is training to be a doctor; we are glad we did. Yes, it is a bit of a climb up the steps but not too bad! The hospital itself (or at least the open parts) is quite small but packed with interesting artifacts and information regarding the development the service this hospital provided. Yes it does highlight the tough life the slate miners endured but, interestingly, showed how the mine owners were responsible for setting up an occupational health service way before the NHS (or OHSs) were generally thought of; quite a different view of "those rich owners who exploited the workers" that we usually hear.

A visit to the hospital museum is ok if you like that sort of thing were you can see a hospital ward and find out how the workers at the slate quarry were treated when they fell ill or had an accident.

Llanberis and Snowdonia is a regular haunt for me and my partner but we've never actually paid a visit to the Quarry Hospital. We love walking Dinorwig Quarry anyway so added this onto our last trek. It's a beautiful building overlooking the lake and if you like historical medical instruments and procedures it's definitely worth a look. We found it very interesting and informative and although it's not a place we would pay a second visit to, it's definitely worth seeing it the once (go into the mortuary, I dare you!)
