Situated on the north shore of Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake), the largest natural lake in Wales, Bala is an historic market town steeped in Welsh culture. The surrounding region of Penllyn boasts stunning mountains, waterfalls, forests and lakes and is a wild idyll for those seeking solitude and natural beauty. Whether it’s mountain biking, walking or watersports you’re after, Bala is a gem of a place not to be missed.
On the outskirts of Bala is The Gorwelion Centre, which has a Play Barn where little ones can enjoy bouncing, climbing and sliding, a gift shop, and a licensed cafe serving locally sourced produce and amazing cakes.
Made famous by the story of Mary Jones and her Bible, Bala is the location of Mary Jones World, a visitor centre telling the story of her historic journey.
