  B E W A R E ....................... !!!
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

LATEST..........
Arriva have made further minor changes to their connecting "88"
service between Llanberis and Caernarfon and vv

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"
