    The exhibits are numbered by very small pebbles, barely visible unless you've been told about them beforehand. The whole array seems disjointed and with a poor sense of flow. The most bewildering area...  more »

    What do you do with bad weather and soggy hiking boots? You go to the visitor center and be surprised. There you can find very beautiful theatrically decorated spaces with wooden statues and wall hangings that are inspired on the environment. There is a kind of hut of braided bands in which videos are shown by a visit to Bardsey Island. Hear the audio tour shows, making you stimulated to relax and to take the time, which is also highly recommended. And there's more! But, go experience it themselves

  • Interesting centre that gives a good introduction to the area. With a handy car park close to beach.
  • Great beach, lovely walks. Great place to get away from everything.
  • Very unique centre portraying the area through visual items and words, all connecting to the area. I though I wouldn't enjoy it as I am a bit of traditionalist! But I did and it helped me understand bit more about the Llyn peninsula. Take time to listen to the audio guide to get an understanding, if you race round it without taking the time to LISTEN and look properly then you would probably find it boring. Great staff including Fred who was very helpful and thanks to him I saw my first Chough today, so thank you Fred! Gift shop and toilet and free carpark for NT members, right by the beach. Went in January so unfortunately all the cafes and the bakery were shut. Pub was open though!
  • Lovely centre - very informative.
  • interesting local info
