Enjoy a ride on the world’s oldest independent railway company. The historic trains climb over 700 feet from sea level into the mountains through tranquil magnificent forests, past lakes and waterfalls, round tight bends (even a complete spiral) clinging to the side of the mountain.

The Welsh Highland Railway

A spectacular 25 mile scenic journey from beneath the castle walls at Caernarfon to the foothills of Snowdon, before zig-zagging dramatically down the steep hillside to reach Beddgelert, nestling in the heart of the National Park, then through the magnificent Aberglaslyn Pass and on to Porthmadog.

Swallow Falls
