Un-earth the story of Welsh Slate and our works’ role in the manufacturing of the slate products that this part of North Wales is rightly famous for. Inigo Jones Slate Works has been established since 1861 and offers self-guided tours and a unique opportunity to create your own slate memento.
Just off the A487, between the historic and harbour towns of Caernarfon and Porthmadog, we’re easily accessible and dog friendly, with free parking, a gift shop and café to complement our main attractions.
We offer a self-guided tour, an activity that can be experienced at your own pace. Children enjoy a quiz as you roam the works, exploring original buildings and viewing the authentic working machinery that produces our Welsh Slate crafts for the shop. If you’re inspired by our craftsmen, we invite you to create your own slate memento to take home from Snowdonia. Visit our website to book a place and find out more about the onsite café, farm shop and butchery.
Open year-round, 9am till 5pm (excluding Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day – closed), Inigo Jones has something for everyone whatever the weather. We extend a warm welcome to all and are well equipped for families and groups. Our whole site is also dog friendly, so no need to leave them behind.
