This place is exactly right in all respects. There is plenty of free parking, no-one badgers you for money (donations welcome), the staff are lovely and friendly and the live web cams extraordinary. I felt children might like the nearby feeders as much as seeing...More

Stopped in whilst en-route to Llanberis and saw the sign for this center at the point we were looking to stretch our legs. The ladies running the center were as knowledgeable as they were enthusiastic. With cameras showing the nests and telescopes available to use...More
