Car Parking in Snowdonia is very limited and can be expensive if a space can be found

The alternative is to leave your car behind and use the
Snowdon Sherpa Bus network

    STOP PRESS..........
    Llew Jones has made changes to their connecting journeys from/back to Llandudno commencing Tuesday 1st Septermber - click here for the latest information..........
    MOST IMPORTANT there is now ONLY a connection from Llandudno into the first Sherpa on Tuesdays also Llanrwst School Term dates

    JULY UPDATE..........
    The limited "summer" weekends only "S6" Sherpa service between Bangor/Bethesda and Pen-y-Pass
(with onward connections at Capel Curig to/from Betws-y-Coed) was eventually re-started on Saturday 25th July
(delayed due to the Coronavirus precautions)

Note specially..........
..........the weekends only morning outward journey from Bangor operates 30 minutes EARLIER than in 2019


Please bookmark and re-visit this page nearer your visit for confirmation
and to check if there have been any further changes
