Self guided audio tour takes you through geology, history, types of slate, uses etc as you walk between the workshops. Relatively small attraction but a lot of information is available. You have the opportunity to try your hand at carving an initial on a small...More

We arrived on a rainy day and were unable to do the tour so we toured the gift shop instead. It had a wonderful variety of items. Prices were decent, staff was kind.

We were a little concerned as their Food Hygiene star rating was nowhere to be seen. Very welcoming staff member and the food was prepared to order. A choice of bread would have been nice. However the toastie was quite nice with fresh salad garnish.
