Penmaenmawr: Local Area Information For Visitors
Penmaenmawr is famous for its quarrying heritage (a bit like most of North Wales really!!). 'Craiglwyd Quarry' began extracting stone in 1834 and continues to this day... albeit a much scaled down operation! The rock is extremely hard 'Diorite' and is used mainly for road and railway construction. There are many fascinating high level walks that include the remains of the old quarry. It is also possible to climb further up the hillside and reach the historic 'Druids Stone Circle (Meini Hirion) which lies on the windswept moorlands high above the village. This well-preserved relic of Prehistoric Britain is around 3,000 years B.C! In addition to this, there is also a Prehistoric Axe Factory nearby. This was one of the most important stone axe manufacturing sites in the whole of Europe.
Today, Penmaenmawr is a very popular seaside village benefiting from clean 'Blue Flag' beaches and easy access.

Other Local Attractions:
Conwy Town and its famous castle are approximately 4.5 miles away and well-served by regular public transport. Conwy's spectacular castle was built in the 13th Century for the King Edward 1st. Today it is recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. One can marvel at its huge, preserved towers and ramparts. A tourist walk around the castle walls gives a completely different view of the streets and quaint alley ways below. Conwy is also famous for the 'UK's Smallest House'! Measuring a mere 3m high x 1.8 m wide, this tiny one-up, one-down was once owned by a 6 foot high fisherman! There is also a good range of pubs, restaurants, cafes and fish & chip shops.
Llandudno, with its lovely pier stretching out to sea, is an excellent example of a Victorian- Era seaside resort. Bustling with hotels and all major high street stores, Llandudno is a great place to go shopping for gifts etc. Nearby is the Great Orme Copper Mines where tourists can visit this 4000 year old Bronze Age site and journey along its network of underground passages. Archaeological excavations still continue to this day and visitors can see how our ancestors turned copper ore into valuable metal.
Penmaenmawr is within very easy reach of the beautiful Isle of Anglesey with its rugged, sea cliff coastline, world famous Menai Suspension Bridge and moated, Beaumaris Castle.
Mount Snowdon at 1085m is Wales' (and England's for that matter!!) highest peak. The village of Llanberis sits at its base and is an ideal destination for anyone interested in outdoor sports such as mountain walking, running, rock climbing/scrambling or kayaking. Llanberis can be reached in sub-thirty minutes from Penmaenmawr by car.
