I knew Llanberis when the slate quarries were still working and watched with sadness their closure. I also witnessed the transformation of the town as people who had lost their jobs were reemployed to use their skills to build Dinorwic power station, although you couldn't...More

We visited the Electric Mountain, Llanberis in September. What an amazing tour. You have to pre book as the tours are really that busy. Worth every penny, absolutely fantastic

Very very disappointed by this venue, more space devoted to selling tat than describing the facility. They could charge an entrance fee and put many innovative displays in place. In fact better just stay outside and look at details using a smartphone !
