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

This "unofficial" website attempts to show what Sherpa Services are available
and to encourage greater use includes some suggested
"trips round Snowdonia - without your car"
