Inigo Jones Slate Works
Un-earth the story of Welsh Slate and the works’ role in manufacturing slate products that North Wales is rightly famous for. Inigo Jones Slate Works has been established since 1861, crafting products exclusively available onsite and online via their website. Products include Ornamental Welsh Slate for the garden, Architectural items, and Homewares such as Tableware, Clocks, Candleholders, Picture frames, Doorstops and more.
Also available is a self-guided tour, an activity that can be experienced at your own pace. Children can enjoy a quiz as you roam the works, exploring original buildings and viewing the authentic working machinery that produces the Welsh Slate crafts for the shop. If you’re inspired by the craftsmen, you’re invited to create your own slate memento to take home from Snowdonia. Visit the website to book a place on the tour and find out more about the onsite café, farm shop and butchery.
Just off the A487, between the historic and harbour towns of Caernarfon and Porthmadog, easily accessible and dog-friendly, with free parking, a gift shop and café all available on one site. Open year-round, from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm (excluding Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day), Inigo Jones has something for everyone whatever the weather. There is a warm welcome to all and Inigo Jones is well equipped for families and groups. The whole site is also dog-friendly, so no need to leave them behind.
