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 services are available

It contains composite timetables of connecting services on a cross-Snowdonia route basis
where a change of bus is necessary --- hopefully it will help you plan your days out

It also includes some suggested "trips round Snowdonia - without your car"
