Barmouth Visitor Information
Barmouth is the start and finish of the Mawddach Way and the start (or finish) of the popular Mawddach Trail which runs along the old Barmouth to Dolgellau railway line. This route forms the final section of the 43 km South Snowdonia Greenway, which runs from Trawsfynydd to Barmouth.
Barmouth has plenty of shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs and ice cream parlours. It can be very quiet outside of the summer months with some of the cafes and restaurants closed, but there is always somewhere to find a meal or a snack, and some would argue that this is the best time to visit.
The iconic Barmouth railway bridge, just outside of the town, is one the most photographed and instantly recognisable features in all of Wales. Bike Hire is available in the town.
For something a little different, why not explore some of the remains of 20th century military activity in the area. From hill-top memorials to beach defences, there are over 50 different sites in and around the Mawddach Estuary to be explored on foot, by bike or by car. See here for further details.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays and other selected dates through the summer holidays, the Greenway Shuttle Bus can connect you and your bike to the start of some of the best cycling routes in Southern Snowdonia. Operating between Dyffryn Ardudwy, Barmouth, Dolgellau, Coed y Brenin and Llyn Trawsfynydd, the bike bus offers the perfect opportunity to leave the car behind and ride instead.
