Snowdonia National Park

Snowdonia National Park (Parc Cenedlaethol Eryri) was established in 1951 and covers over 820 square miles of mountainous landscapes and 37 miles of coastline.

Attracting over 6 million visitors annually, the area is home to the highest mountain in England and Wales, Snowdon, and is renowned for its geology, rocky valleys and waterfalls. Thousands of years of human occupancy is evident through Stone Age burial chambers, castles, industrial works and roman remains.
