Things to do at Parc Glynllifon

A sprawling park filled with filming locations and shops, a historic manor house, an agricultural college and a rich history of royalty, Parc Glynllifon is filled with things to do with your family, connecting people of all ages to North Wales' nature:

  • Children's Grove: Celebrate Welsh children's writing with sculptures, play areas and storytelling hollows
  • The Steam Engine: Renovated in the 1980s, see one of the oldest working steam engines in Britain
  • Glanrafon Mill: Originally a flour mill, a turbine was installed in 1915 to generate electricity for the house and estate
  • The Boathouse: Used by the third Lord Newborough's children, the tiny tower houses a miniature privy

  • The Children's Mill: Another favourite folly of Lord Newborough's nine children 
  • The Hermitage: A chapel for holding funerals for the family's pets - today, there lies a circle of Yew trees signifying the pet cemetary's location

  • Caves and Grottoes: See the 19th Century fashionable grotto as it stands out amongst the informal gardens
