THINGS TO DO...

Exploring Tywyn

Tourist information is available online:
www.visitwales.com is a good start, as is www.visitmidwales.co.uk. Cadw at cadw.gov.wales is the equivalent of English Heritage or Historic Scotland.

There are many attractions within an hours drive from abandoned silver mines to clock golf to kite surfing; and of course, the Snowdonia National Park surrounds Tywyn. The most useful maps are Ordnance Survey Landranger maps nos. 135 and 124.

Tywyn is an old fashioned seaside town. As well as the miles of sandy beach there is a leisure centre with a swimming pool in the town, along with crazy golf.
Sea fishing is very popular, with bass, monkfish, and rays all being caught locally.

No trip to the seaside is complete without ice cream.  Just one minute’s drive out of Tywyn is the famous Holgates Ice Cream Shop.  Their delicious honey flavoured ice cream is only available here.

Tallylyn Railway Steam RailwaY
The famous Tallylyn Railway, the UK’s oldest preserved railway, has its main station in Tywyn, restored entirely by volunteers.  You can enjoy a steam train ride to the beautiful Dogoch Waterfalls. It was his work on the Tallyllyn Railway that inspired the Rev Wilbert Awdry to write Thomas the Tank Engine, and you can see Thomas and his friends running in the school holidays.

The Talyllyn railway was built originally to bring slate from the mines inland to the main line railway at Tywyn. Slate can still be purchased in the slate mining village of Corris, Merionethshire.

Walking and climbing
The Dysynni valley is the most local part of the Snowdonia National Park and is located just outside Tywyn.
