A great sampling of slate from the North Wales area including some very unusual items. Service was excellent. Good prices, too.
We followed the brown sign to the slate works, not knowing what to expect. The gift shop was excellent, offering something different from the norm. We took the self-guided tour, but it wasn't much of a success. My headphones kept falling off, and it was a nuisance to keep fiddling about, stopping and starting the commentary. I gave that up...

Have been past a few times, so this time we went in for a look! There are lots of things for sale in the shop, and not too over priced either. Some really interesting slate things. We did the "tour" which was fun. Started off watching a video about slate and how it's mined, which was really quite interesting. Then... More
I previously visited this site many years ago, and it now boast a vastly upgraded shop/showroom and cafe, which was very clean and tidy, with a wide selection of slate goods on sale, together with a selection of other items. We did not make use of the cafe, but that looked as if it would be well up to the... More
cycled along the path which took us to Inigo Jones, stopped for a coffee - very sweet Welsh lady serving and preparing everything fresh to order, the slate was interesting and the shop great. Worth popping in - also worth noting the slate items were cheaper here than other slate places.
We stopped here on our way to Caernarfon, not expecting too much. Ended up spending two hours here and probably could have spent more. Not a massive site but the tour took you through various sheds packed with interesting history about the site and its founder, facts about geology and how slate forms and how it has been extracted over...

This was a most informative visit. No entry fee, and loads of information with video and sound information in each area. Would have liked more time to spend looking around.
Went here with 2 boys (aged 6 and 12) and two dogs, because it was raining, and weren't really expecting too much. How mistaken! Had a good toasted sandwich in the cafe - very clean and friendly before we went on the tour. You can take dogs round, which is good as they don't have to wait in the car,... More
We visited on a Sunday and had the place to ourselves and really enjoyed the self guided audio tour (£5 each). We spent a lazy hour looking over the workshop sheds and we all really enjoyed having a go at slate engraving. It's a working slate workshop, although not in operation on a sunday.... There was a cafe on site... More
We visited the Inigo Jones Slate works during a week in North Wales in July. When we got there, we were the only visitors and were quickly given our MP3s for the tour of the works. You listen to the information while going through the works learning how the slate was brought to the area etc. At one point, you... More
