    Once a tiny peasant village, Llanberis grew up in the early 1800s, when the workers of the surrounding slate quarries moved in. Today the drowsy village is a popular destination among hikers and mountaineers as the several summits are in reach. There are two narrow gauge railways located in Llanberis. The Llanberis Lake Railway leads arround Llyn Padarn, as the famous Snowdon Mountain Railway brings you up to the highest summit of Wales.

    Once a tiny farming village, Llanberis grew up in the early 1800s when workers moved to surrounding shale quarries. Today, the sleepy village is a popular destination for hikers and mountaineers, as many peaks are within reach. There are two narrow gauge railways in Llanberis today. The Llanberis Lake Railway passes around Llyn Padarn and the famous Snowdon Mountain Railway takes you to the highest peak in Wales.

    Llanberis is located directly on Llyn Padarn. There are several good photo spots here. In Llanberis the mountain railway departs for Snowdon. In addition, Llanberis is the starting point for several hikes, especially to the Snowdon, around the Llyn Padarn and the Dinorwic Slate Mine.
