Barmouth History and Places of Interest

Like most towns, Barmouth has many buildings with an interesting historical story.

With its maritime background, and more recent popularity as a Victorian holiday resort, the town and its buildings reflect their influences from centuries past.

We have put together some highlights to the more noteworthy places of interest. However, more detail can be provided by a book written by ourselves, the compilers of this website.

Discover Barmouth is a guide to Barmouth town and the very local area. It was written by ourselves, Owena and John, around 10 years ago and was very popular at the time of publication as there was no other guide to the local area.

We still have some copies left. If you would like to purchase one, call in at our shop, Luvit, on Barmouth high street (google maps) (Luvit website).

Most of the content for the following places of interest have been summarised from Discover Barmouth.
