Llanberis is a village in Gwynedd, northwest Wales, on the southern bank of the lake Llyn Padarn and at the foot of Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales.

Here are some ideas for day two: take an in-depth tour of National Slate Museum, make a trip to Electric Mountain, take in the dramatic scenery at Swallow Falls, then identify plant and animal life at Zip World Fforest, and finally don't miss a visit to Betws-y-Coed Railway Station.

To find where to stay, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Llanberis travel planner.

Drive from Bala to Llanberis in 1.5 hours. Expect a daytime high around 17°C in May, and nighttime lows around 9°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 10th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
