The Druid's Circle itself isn't much to see but if you're an avid hiker, like myself, the journey from the train station to the circle is WONDERFUL. The fastest way up is through the town, across the pasture to Graiglwyd Farm and up the trail...More

Walked up to the circle on New Years Day with a friend to blow the cobwebs away and have some spiritual time. The walk up is easy, not too steep and well signposted. There are several smaller stone circles close by so plenty to see...More

It's a very long walk up to Meini Hirion or Druid's Circle but the view is definitely worth the walk. It does get very cold though and fog can set in really quickly as well.

We walked from Penmaenmawr up to the druids circle as part of a family get together as we used to go there as part of our family holiday as children. It was a hard slog walking up through the ferns but it was worth it...More

This site is at the top of the mountain in Penmaenmawr. There are several paths to this area, but I tend to use the path that runs directly from the high street; follow signs for Jubilee Path up to Mountain Lane. There are spectacular views...More

Hi there, If you want to walk it from the village centre it'll take you a good 3 hours, of which most is very much uphill. In the car you can drive up to the Jubilee Walk start and then walk there and back to your car... More
