Snowdonia Ready for Easter


23 March 2016

With weather forecasters predicting changeable weather over Easter, Snowdonia National Park Authority is looking forward to welcoming visitors from all over the world over the coming weeks.

One member of staff who has been preparing for the busy months ahead is Awel Gruffydd, the Information Centres’ Commercial Manager for the Authority.

"The Tourist Information Centre in Betws y Coed has experienced a very successful winter and the challenge for us now is to continue with the same success in our Centres at Beddgelert and Aberdyfi. Minor improvements have been made to our Centre in Aberdyfi as we hope to make further improvements there during the year, but our Centre in Beddgelert has undergone some transformation. In addition, we've received new stock of books, merchandise and souvenirs and are delighted to be able to sell a number of local produce by local craftspeople, including greeting cards and mugs from Bethesda, bags from Dolgellau, woollen blankets from Flint, and mushroom growing kits from Nantmor. Plenty of variety and choice for everyone! "

Also distributed for the holidays are tens of thousands of copies of the National Park newspaper, Eryri/Snowdonia. This year, as it’s the Wales Year of Adventure, the content and the design of the newspaper reflects this. Branwen Rhys Dafydd is the editor.

 “This year's edition has 16 pages full of tips on things to do in Snowdonia. There's information on footpaths on Cadair Idris, Snowdon and in the Maentwrog area, biking in Coed y Brenin Forest Park and the best places to stargaze at night in Snowdonia. It also has information on events that are being held in the area throughout the year and there’s also an update on some of the Authority’s main projects.”

The Information Centres are open from 0930 until 5pm, or for more details of things to do and places to visit in Snowdonia, visit
