Blaenau Ffestiniog Cottages

The town was once a centre of the Welsh slate mining industry and although the substantial slate waste tips provide a reminder of the past, its economy today is largely dependent on tourism; the population is a little under 5,000.

The Llechwedd Slate Caverns enable visitors to travel on the Miners' Tramway or descend into the Deep Mine, via a funicular railway, to explore the former slate quarry and learn how slate was extracted and processed and about the lives of the miners. On the site is a Victorian village complete with a shop, chemist, smithy, cobbler, printer, sweet shop, pub and bank. The slate used to be carried down to the coast at Porthmadog by the Ffestiniog Railway.
