Hafod Eryri the new visitor centre on Mount Snowdon's peak, Wales.

Snowdonia National Park Authority's New Visitors' Centre on Mount Snowdon Opens - 12 June 2009

Five years to build and at a cost 8.5 million including granite walls from Blaenau Ffestiniog and Welsh oak for the building's interior. But then it had to be a special building to withstand the hostile conditions on the unforgiving 3,500 feet summit of Mount Snowdon. From 150 miles per hour winds, an annual rainfall of over five metres and temperatures plunging below minus 20 centigrade. This was some building challenge. The Snowdonia National Park is proud of this architectural feat and Penmaenuchaf Hall would strongly recommend the visit to Hafod Eryri on Mount Snowdon's peak.
