Attractions and activities in Snowdonia North Wales

The Narrow Gauge Bala Lake Railway steams along the lakeside to Llanuwchllyn. The area offers a wide choice of activities - walking, climbing, cycling and pony trekking, swimming at the Penllyn Leisure Centre or Ten Pin Bowling at the Urdd multi-activity centre, Glan Llyn and Bala Golf course for which we have negotiated special rates for our guests.

Sheep dog trials were first held in Bala. Today trials, agricultural and horticultural shows and traditional corn cutting are held annually around Meirionnydd. The area's cultural activities can be enjoyed by visitors, including concerts, eisteddfodau, carnivals and the annual festival - Gwyl y Gwyniaid. Details of events, attractions and accommodation can be obtained from the Tourist Information Centre.

From Bala, explore Snowdonia - the beaches and resorts of Cardigan Bay, Aberdovey, Tywyn, Fairbourne, and the golden sands of the Ardudwy coast which stretch from Barmouth to Harlech.

Attractions accessible nearby Harlech Castle, and Castell y Bere near Tywyn - the latter built by Llywelyn the Great. The industrial heritage is represented in the Vale of Ffestiniog by the slate caverns at Llechwedd and Llanfair. The Ffestiniog Narrow Gauge Railway carries numerous visitors each year to Porthmadog. The power stations of Ffestiniog and Trawsfynydd both have visitor centres.
