Fodor's Review

At an abandoned slate quarry in the hills north of Machynlleth, a railway transports you to a futuristic village equipped with all things green: alternative energy sources like solar panels and wood-chip boilers, organic gardens, and a vegetarian café. Interactive displays present practical ideas about renewable resources. You get a 10% discount by booking tickets online.
