The Snowdon Summit Visitors Centre is accessible by foot or by the Snowdon Mountain Railway. Snowdon, at 3,560ft dominates the landscape of Snowdonia National Park in North Wales. This posed some interesting challenges to the Construction team when building the new Visitors Centre.
The views from the train as you are carried along a ridge to the Summit are truly breath taking. You will have one of the world’s most spectacular panoramas at your feet. On very clear days at the Summit you can see as far as the Wicklow Mountains in Ireland and the Isle of Man.
The railway reaches the Summit of Snowdon and Hafod Eryri, and stops at the new Summit Visitor Centre. This amazing feat of engineering opened in 2009. This fantastic new destination is sympathetically designed to complement the landscape. This landmark building grows out of the mountain and features spectacular panoramic windows giving travellers to Hafod Eryri unimpaired views across the mighty Snowdonia range and up to the summit. The Welsh oak interior provides visitors with a Warm Welsh Welcome protected beneath the granite cloud like roof.
