I recently had a rainy day here in Snowdonia, so I spent my time creating a parking map for Snowdon.

Here you’ll find all the Pay & Display car parks and some free laybys for all the main routes up Snowdon.

Just open the map and click on the marker pin to see more info about that parking spot.

I’ve included prices, the number of spaces, whether they take card or only accept coins etc.

I may not be able to provide sat nav postcodes as these often cover a very wide area and won’t be precise.

Llanberis Path

The most popular route up Snowdon.

There are several Pay & Display car parks in the town of Llanberis.

The closest is opposite the railway.

Click on the pins in the map for info about each car park:

Pyg Track, Miners Track & Crib Goch

The Pyg Track and Miners’ Track routes are very popular and start at Pen y Pass Car Park which last year was Prebook Only from April to October and Pay & Display in the winter.

Pen y Pass Car Park is tiny and is the most expensive place to park in Snowdonia.

Consider the Park & Ride at Nant Peris.

There’s a free layby 100 metres away but don’t park in front of the houses or cafe as these areas are for customers and residents.

Rhyd Ddu Path

One of my favourite routes, often very quiet.

There is a Pay & Display next to the train station.

About Daniel Woodley

I hope you found this page helpful, I’ll try to update the prices on the map as and when I can.

If you’re visiting Snowdon on a Bank Holiday weekend, I suggest getting there very early to get a parking space as this area is extremely popular.
