Inigo Jones Slateworks

Heritage and Culture Attractions North Wales

Established in 1861 to prefabricate school writing slates the company now offers a self guided tour of the works with an opportunity to have a go at calligraphy and engraving on a piece of slate that you get to keep as a souvenir. The company also has a showroom where its slate products are available for purchase as are other welsh and Celtic gifts.

Over the years, Inigo Jones Slateworks has diversified to include the original slate workshop, self-guided tour of the slateworks, cafe and showroom.

The tour of the works was introduced in the early 1980's by popular demand. It is a self guided tour and is both educational and fun. There is an introductory video presentation, after which you can wander through the work shops at your own pace and view the machines and craftsmen in action, accompanied by your own personal taped commentary.

There are also geological, historical, calligraphy and letter cutting exhibitions. Try your hand at calligraphy and engrave on a piece of slate that you get to keep.

Children can also compete in our quiz to win a slate prize.

The new showroom has a wide variety of the company's slate craft products as well as other craft products of a Celtic and Welsh theme.

Our Welsh Rock Cafe, featuring the history of Welsh music, right up to the present, is an ideal venue to relax with a drink and a bite to eat, after what we are sure will be an enjoyable and fulfilling visit.

The Slate Work Shops and Showroom are open every day of the year, including weekends, (except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day) from 9am to 5pm. Dog friendly.

The cafe is also open every day as above but from 10am to 5pm. The last self guided tour is at 4pm.
