A Warm Welcome; From The Rock

In the centre of Snowdonia, Blaenau Ffestiniog is known as the heart of the national park, from rugged mountains the Vale leads on to sandy beaches, here you’ll find people, culture, activities, attractions, food and entertainment that’s From the Rock.

Blaenau Ffestiniog has for as long as anyone can remember been known as "the town that roofed the world".  Slate was how Blaenau made its name, and the town is immensely proud of its industrial heritage. From a cluster of farms a bustling town grew, and a number of quarries were opened; one of them, Llechwedd is one of Wales' top visitor attractions, where you can visit to experience life as a Victorian miner, you may also travel like the Victorians on the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway to Porthmadog. The area boasts a range of attractions for everyone.

In addition, Blaenau Ffestiniog is hoping to carve a name for itself as one of Britain's premier outdoor centres, boasting a range of activities from walking to fishing, kayaking to climbing all of this with a rich blend of history, culture encompassing all the uniqueness that Bro Ffestiniog has to offer!

Recent and on-going developments have created a wealth of opportunities here and as the Chamber of Tourism and Commerce we’re eager to see existing and new businesses thrive in Ffestiniog, remember that you can engage with the Chamber via this website.

We hope that you enjoy the site and that you visit Blaenau soon to experience a place like no other.
