Parking and Public Transport

All our walking routes up Snowdon contain the vital “Route Information” on the sidebar, which includes Public Transport and Parking info. But for your convenience, here’s a rundown of the Snowdon parking, their post codes and charges for the big 6 main routes up Snowdon.

Current Snowdonia National Park info indicates you must pre-book your parking for the Pen y Pass Car Park (April 8th – November 8th 2021) – Bookings are only available to be made at least 24 hour in advance. Minimum price is £18 for a 8 hour parking session. Please remember that space are limited and therefore tickets are likely to sell out very quickly!

Snowdon Sherpa

Thinking of the environment and want to avoid taking your car to a nearby car park? Or maybe you’d like to descend via a different route to your ascent route up Snowdon? Then your option is the handy Snowdon Sherpa service, which shuttles around Snowdon and connects the big 6 main routes for as little as £5 a day. Here’s our full Snowdon Sherpa guide.

A friendly word of warning, Snowdon is the busiest mountain in the UK, thus parking spaces, especially during summer months are at a premium, here’s a handy article by our sister site on How to Avoid a Parking Ticket in Snowdonia This Summer.
