Owner description: Inigo Jones Slate Works produces a wide range of products from 500 million year old natural Welsh slate. These products are available at our Showroom, located in Groeslon, North Wales. As well as our Showroom, there is also a popular Workshop audio-tour for all the family to enjoy geological, historical, calligraphy and letter cutting exhibitions, and children can also compete in our quiz to win a slate prize. There is also a Welsh Rock Cafe which offers snacks and drinks to our customers. Come and have a look!

Good value for money £5 each. Its a shelf guided tour so you get little mp3s that tell you the story as you walk round from shed to shed. It was very educational and you get to try your hand at calligraphy and chiselling. There's a lot of beautiful things in the gift shop.

If you are in the area it is well worth a visit and is easy to get to by road. The staff are really friendly in the craft centre and will assit you with your purchases. I think it cost £5 to go in and you get a ipod to give you a audio tour. They give you a block of slate when you go in and at the end you can go to the workshop and use the tools to engrave your slate. We did not go in the cafe so i can not comment on that. An interesting couple of hours

Inigo Jones has a good variety of slate and other goods at reasonable prices. The shop has a welcoming atmosphere with a nice cafe in a separate building. Well worth a visit for authentic Welsh products.

This is very accessible by road (A487) and called there a number of times during our recent holiday. We found the cafe was very clean and had friendly staff and offered good reasonably priced food and liked the way the Craft Centre had most of its items for sale made in Wales. Thoroughly enjoyed the great slate tour - our children really enjoyed using the ipods and earphones, and especially engraving their blocks of slate at the end.
