Visit Elan

In Brief


Escape to Elan! We are a world away from the relentless pace of modern life but close enough to make a memorable day trip from Birmingham (where much of our water travels to!), Cardiff and Manchester.

Our Visitor Centre below Caban Coch dam is a good place to learn about the remarkable building of the dams and the alternative ways to explore. There is a gift shop with useful maps, local produce and mementos of Elan. We also have a spacious cafe alongside the River Elan which serves homemade snacks and meals.

If you are interested in coming as part of a larger group by coach it is always worth getting in touch ahead of your visit. We are always pleased to welcome groups, including schools, and have dedicated Rangers who will make sure you have a visit to remember.
