Explore the formidable slate mountains with a thrilling guided adventure in a 4 x 4 military truck at Llechwedd Slate Quarries, which takes you 1400ft above sea level, through massive craters and into the heart of these manmade mountains.

The Deep Mine tour takes you 500 feet underground on the steepest cable railway in Britain to tell the story of how this mine built the incredible slate industry which roofed the world.

Llechwedd is about a 45 minute drive from the hotel.
