Engraving your own name in the slate, a very hands on experience. Receptionist very helpful. Prices for entry and in the gift shop very reasonable.

We managed to book a tour for a stormy day and at only £6.50 per adult it was a decent price. The shop is lovely and has some great bits. The tour is self guided following the numbers and audio. A video kicked it off which was interesting. The tour itself was great (number 4 was a bit confusing) with lots of info given. We were also able to have a go at calligraphy and engraving our own slate (which they provide as part of the tour) which was just amazing and great fun. Overall a great morning out for a fab price! Highly recommend.

Visited with our 2 kids, aged 12 and 14 and all really enjoyed it. Self guided tour was really interesting and with the opportunity to try calligraphy and slate engraving. The kids did the quiz, resulting in a lovely slate prize. We were able to take our dog and it was a good wet weather option as most of the tour was inside the workshops. Lovely giftshop, friendly staff and then a very welcome homemade soup in the cafe.

We cycled along cycle route 8 with a planned end point of the Inigo Jones Slate works in order to browse in the shop and get a bite of lunch (outside). Checked website before leaving home and looks open. Arrived:only the shop is open, no access to facilities (toilets), no options for getting a take out lunch/food (only tea/coffee at farm shop). Disappointed.

Thanks for your email and sorry you came and only the slate shop and farm shop were open However the website clearly stated this fact, and we did not fully open all our facilities until 3/8/2020 and we posted this fact a few days before opening. Our facilities our now open observing social distancing, although tours have to be pre booked in advance by phone owing to the covid regulations. We had to ensure we conformed in full to the covid regulations and is the reason we did not fully open until the 3rd of August to safeguard our staff and visitors Again apologies and we would have opened sooner if it had been possible

We have 2 dogs and were allowed to browse the gift shop. The lady who served behind the counter was wonderful and pleasant to chat too. Just wish I had won the lottery the items to purchase were amazing. We did not do the tour although you were allowed to take dogs with you..will definitely come again without the dogs and plenty of money
