Once the capital of the slate quarrying industry, Blaenau Ffestiniog has been turned into a major tourist attraction. At Llechwedd Slate Caverns you can take the Miner's Tramway into the side of the mountain and into a succession of spectacular chambers where a miner describes the working of the mine. Alternatively, you can ride down the underground cliff railway into the Deep Mine, and experience the audio and visual presentation as a miner from long ago takes you through the chambers.
