  • Porth y Swnt exceeded our expectations. The free audio guides orientated us around thought-provoking installations created by skilled craft experts and each of us took home something new: dressing up as a puffin to hide in a nest, learning about the resilience of the Bardsey lighthouse lantern even when under attack by enemy bullets, inspired by local music and intrigued by The Sound based upon real time meteorological data. Little people were issued with a torch for “the dark tunnel” and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful. There may not be a tea room on site (there’s car parking and toilets as you might expect from the National Trust) but the Becws Islyn Bakery, complete with upstairs café, is less than 100m up the hill from the centre – delicious orange and chocolate brownies!
