Things to Do in Snowdonia

description

The Barmouth Sailors' Institute was erected in 1890 and the Victorian Reading Room is a fine example of its time being still more or less as it was when built. Together with many artefacts including pictures, paintings and model ships, the daily newspaper may still be read free of charge, as was the original concept when the Institute was founded.

Ty Gwyn dates back to 1460 and is one of the first four buildings to be built in the shelter of the anchorage.

Ty Crwn ('Round House'), situated just behind Ty Gwyn, was erected in 1834 as a lock-up. It consists of two cells, one for men and one for women and was last used in 1861.
