Penrhyn Quarry Tour Essentials

Penrhyn Quarry Tour

Zip World Penrhyn Quarry is well known as a place to experience high speed, high adrenaline adventure, but it’s also home to the Penrhyn Quarry Tour. A great opportunity to learn all about the history of this iconic location, it’s a 90-minute trip up to the top of the quarry at 1,500 feet above sea level, taking in stunning views of the Ogwen Valley, Menai Strait and Snowdonia National Park.

Once you embark on one of our red ex-army trucks, you’ll be treated to an in-depth tour by an experienced guide of what is the oldest slate quarry in the world. What was also once the world’s largest manmade pit, it’s now filled with brilliant blue water creating a truly stunning spectacle. From the top, you’ll be able to watch the brave zippers taking part in Velocity 2, the world’s fastest zip line, while keeping your feet safely on solid ground! Once you’ve completed your tour you can enjoy tea & cake back at our Blondin Restaurant, which is also on hand serving locally sourced food & drink in case you’ve worked up more of an appetite following your epic adventures!
