Tuesday This morning we head to Llanberis where we will have a morning journey on the Llanberis Lake Railway starting at Gilfach Ddu station going all the way to Penllyn before returning back to the station, after this we’ll head over for a visit at the National Slate Museum. The Museum is sited in the Victorian workshops built in the shadow of Elidir Mountain, site of the vast Dinorwig quarry. Here you can travel into the past of the industry and a way of life that has chiselled itself into the very being of this country. The workshops and buildings are designed as though quarrymen and engineers have just put down their tools and left the courtyard for home. An array of talks and demonstrations including slate-splitting gives you a real insight into quarry life. We return to the hotel via the stunning Llanberis Pass and Betws-y-Coed.
