Y Felinheli lies resting gently against the shores of the Menai Straits in North Wales lying between Bangor and Caernarfon with easy access to the A55 Expressway. Located on the Menai Straits Y Felinheli takes its name from the tidal power that used to work the mills as opposed to those that used rivers and streams. The port here was originally built and used for the shipping out of the slate that was mined at Dinorwic which was then transported to the port by narrow gauge railway for export. The Dinorwic quarry was responsible for the building of the port including a tidal lock and dry dock which today has been redeveloped as a marina. The Padarn Railway was a four foot gauge line built to connect the port to the quarry and the railway survived until 1961 today part of this railway survives as the Llanberis lake railway. Y Felinheli is today an ideal base for those who enjoy an active holiday water sports, climbing and walking are readily available activities in the area. As it is midway between Bangor and Caernarfon then visits to these historic Welsh attractions should not be missed. The marina though is what attracts record visitors every year, it is the UKs only Grade II Listed marina and there is plenty for mariners and landlubbers to enjoy.
