Points of Interest & Landmarks
About
Climbing haphazardly up the steep slopes at the back of the High Street, the paths and alleys of old Barmouth reveal many quaint and delightful corners. Houses seem to be built almost on top of one another in this fascinating jumble of steps and terraces.

The Old Part is really interesting & well worth exploring
Jun 2021
In June the alleyways & walkways were filled with lovely flowers of many types. The old part is lovely & quaint but there are many steps up to the top. I would recommend purchasing the Heritage Trail leaflet £1 available from the tourist information centre located in the Station Booking office open 9am - 5pm. The trail covers the old town & more.

There is so much to admire
Jun 2021
I was directed here by a local who said that I would probably get a pain in the neck because, to appreciate the area, you have to keep looking up. That is very true because you have to look above ground level to appreciate the buildings and, in some cases, their totally different colours from the buildings surrounding them. You also have to look round corners, to find hidden little alleys. Walking round, there is so much to admire.

A steep climb...
Apr 2021 • Solo
I managed to located some rather steep steps located towards the end of the High Street in Barmouth and had a quick look at the old town, which reminded me a little of Clovelly and Polperro.
There are some lovely little properties, many seeming to have little alleyways leading towards them.
A very charming part of an attractive seaside town with views out to Barmouth Bridge.
Visited 22nd April 2021.

Beautiful
Nov 2020
We have never visited here before and were quite overwhelmed by the buildings. Even in the damp weather, it was still easy to admire this very special place and how nice to see that it has preserved it's charm, retained many of the original shopfronts and not spoiled the scenery with unsightly signage.

The best part of Barmouth
Jul 2019
Over the many years we have walked old Barmouth. It is so picturesque and with the most beautiful views. There are many different routes up from the town, worth trying them all. not that I am sure I have found them all yet. There are many ruins if you keep going, even further huge lakes in the mountains. This is welsh scenery at its very best

Quaint
Jul 2019
Decided 2 follow reviews n see if they met expectations, they did! It is a bit of a climb but the tiny winding streets along with the tiny welsh cottages are a sight 2 see let alone the view when u get 2 the top! It amazed all of us (5 adults n 4 children 11-13) how the materials were transported up the hill so far 2 build the structures. Only allowed 1500 characters so will hopefully leave longer review later!

Old Barmouth is just stunning to look around. Bit of a steep walk up to it but well worth it in my eyes.
