Snowdonia has been used in many films. The untouched beauty makes the National Park ideal for historic films, whilst the dynamic mountains enable the park to represent other destinations.

It’s not just Snowdonia’s mountains which are in high demand, but the quarry’s, too. Dinorwig Quarry in Llanberis was used as a location for Clash of the Titans (2010). The film brought with it some big stars to the region, including Liam Neeson and Sam Worthington. Parts of the film were shot on Newborough Beach in Anglesey, too.
