Llanberis - Other Places of Interest

This is the signpost outside the front of the Snowdon Mountain Railway shop that shows you just some of the many things that Llanberis has to offer while you are in the area.
When we are busy you may have to wait a while for your train but all these things are within walking distance of the average person and many of them are free.
Dolbadarn Castle, just across the road from us, was built in the early 12th century and has commanding views across Llyn Padarn and up to Llanberis Pass. It played an important part in the conflicts between Welsh princes and English kings and is also the subject of a painting by J M W Turner.
