Journey through time and scenic beauty on the Ffestiniog Railway

The beauty and wonder of Snowdonia beckons aboard the Ffestiniog Railway. Brace yourself for an extraordinary experience as you step into the embrace of the oldest independent railway in the world. Surrounded by breathtaking scenery this railway journeys 13.5 miles from the picturesque harbour of Porthmadog to the historic slate-quarrying town of Blaenau Ffestiniog.

But, this isn't just a train ride; it's a voyage through time and nature. You can expect comfortable carriages, while historic steam engines add a touch of yesteryear's charm. As you ascend over 700 feet from sea level into the heart of the mountains, you'll witness the landscape unfold like a masterpiece before your eyes.

Traverse through tranquil pastures, be enchanted by magnificent forests, and let the sight of pristine lakes and cascading waterfalls captivate you. The journey is a dance with nature, navigating horseshoe bends with grace, and even conquering complete spirals as it clings to the mountainside or elegantly tunnels through its rocky embrace. This wonderful experience is a testament to the amazing marvel that is Wales' railway heritage.
