King Arthur’s Labyrinth, Corris

Located inside the mountains of Snowdonia, King Arthur’s Labyrinth is a unique cave. You will stroll inside it on a boat and a sound and light show will bring history to life. You will travel through time and pass a magical underground waterfall after which life during the reign of King Arthur will unfold in front of your eyes.

But underground is just half of the story. Once you are up on the surface you will find yourself inside the Corris Craft Centre, a lovely craft market where you can have a go making your own crafts.

Fairbourne Miniature Railway

The smallest narrow-gauge railway in Wales connects the village of Fairbourne to the Barmouth Ferry railway station. The 2 miles long railway is very scenic as one can admire the Mawddach estuary and the mountains. The line is narrow gauge (15 inch or 381 mm) since 1916.

Anglesey Boat Trips

The coastline in Anglesey is both scenic and spectacular. In order to explore it, you can take a boat trip with experienced pilots in both fast and slow boats. There are four locations where you can start your trip: Dinorwic Marina, Felinheli, Beaumaris Pier, Menai Bridge Pier and Plas Newydd.
