About Heritage Centre & Cafe
Mary Jones World in Bala is an award-winning state of the art visitor centre and cafe that tells the story of Mary Jones and Thomas Charles, and the impact of world's best-selling book – on Wales and the world!
Step back in time, follow Mary's journey, 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 Llyn Tegid (Bale Lake), with an on-site cafe, picnic area, facilities and children’s playground, Mary Jones World offers a great time out for children and adults alike.
Café Tegid offers a selection of hot drinks, tasty homemade cakes and light lunches from local suppliers. The café is open to everyone – you can enjoy the cafe without visiting the centre. Group bookings are available on request.
