Mary Jones World is a state of the art visitor and education centre that tells the story of Mary Jones and Thomas Charles, and the impact of world’s bestselling book – on Wales and the world.

Step back in time, follow Mary's journey, a twenty-six mile walk to buy a copy of the Welsh Bible, and explore what happened next through multi-media and interactive displays, exhibits and activities in our redeveloped Grade 2-listed building.

Set on the edge of Lake Bala, with a picnic area, facilities and children’s playground, Mary Jones World offers a great time out for children and adults alike.
