Now where do I get tourist information? Admittedly the Festiniog Railway's Harbour Station did have some leaflets and were quite helpful although advertising everybody else isn't their job! Nevertheless they were quite helpful.

As a well-travelled individual, I can't help feeling that this TIC has rather missed the point. A bit spartan inside, and, at the time of my visit, strangely, lacking in detailed maps. Still, the staff are chatty (mostly).

The centre was really busy, the staff very patient, knowledgeable and helpful. We certainly hope they continue to get the funding needed as this is an important place to have this kind of facility!
