Watch traditional slate splitting in the workshop.
Learn how Llechwedd distributed slate worldwide in the 1800s and hear all about the working and social history of the Quarry workers. You will witness the craft of slate splitting and even have a go yourself! A small quiz is incorporated. The tour costs £7.50 per person and takes approximately 30 minutes. After the tour you are escorted to the café to sample our Welsh Slate Cavern Aged Cheddar that we mature here underground in our caverns.
We make everything from slate table mats and coasters, house numbers to slate wine racks and even plant pots. One of the most popular things is to have a slate nameplate or number made for your home, for a wedding, birthday or anniversary personalised gift. You can even order one in the morning before heading off on a tour and then collect it in the afternoon before leaving.
The full range of slate products is available in the Workshop, in our Gift Shop and Online click here.
