Electric Mountain Visitor Centre
For a truly electrifying family day out, visit Electric Mountain Visitor Centre, Llanberis, where you’ll discover the amazing powers of pumped storage hydro-electricity in an educational environment.
Take a journey of exploration, marvel at the sheer size of the massive inlet valve chambers and see close up the world’s fastest response turbine generators–they go from zero to full power in seconds! Descending deep inside the ancient Elidir mountain’s labyrinth of dark and imposing tunnels, you’ll experience one of man’s greatest engineering achievements.
Back at Electric Mountain, stop off at our excellent Café serving you home-made refreshments, visit Y Den soft play or have a browse around the shop for some unique gifts.
