Very interesting and informative slate tour.

Visited with our 2 kids, aged 12 and 14 and all really enjoyed it. Self guided tour was really interesting and with the opportunity to try calligraphy and slate engraving. The kids did the quiz, resulting in a lovely slate prize. We were able to take our dog and it was a good wet weather option as most of the tour was inside the workshops. Lovely gift shop, friendly staff and then a very welcome homemade soup in the cafe.

Happy September Customer!

Thanks so much for your kind and attentive service, I love my coasters!! 😀

Wonderful atmosphere

We have 2 dogs and were allowed to browse the gift shop. The lady who served behind the counter was wonderful and pleasant to chat too. Just wish I had won the lottery the items to purchase were amazing. We did not do the tour although you were allowed to take dogs with you..will definitely come again without the dogs and plenty of money

Wonderful selection of slate and slate wear

We ordered a house name plaque when we visited last week and had very helpful advice and attention from Sue, who assisted us in the design and lettering. On our way home we collected the finished article, cut, etched and beautifully polished by Robert. We are delighted with the outcome. It’s now on the front of our house and looks wonderful! A highly professional and unique work of art. The shop is great too! Diolch yn fawr iawn i pawb.

Interesting day

My wife and I enjoyed the audio tour of this slate works. Fascinating historical diary. Hadn’t appreciated slate came in colours other than grey! Loved the chance to ‘have own go’ at the very end. Departed with a lovely slate salver.

Excellent ‘visit

An outstanding visit includes a short film that starts your tour then a very good audio tour that takes you into every department. it is all in a small area and includes a chance to carve a piece of slate for your self this is harder than you think but a really interesting visit and good in any weather and finish in the shop for a souvenir lots of nice things made on site
