Take a once in a lifetime adventure on the Snowdon Mountain Railway, which has been described as one of the most scenic railway journeys in the world. Trains depart from Llanberis Station and begin their climb to the Summit of Snowdon, Yr Wyddfa, a journey experienced by some 12 million travellers since 1896. 

On a clear day the views can stretch as far as Ireland from Hafod Eryri, the UK’s highest visitor centre, 1,085 meters above sea level. With stunning scenery and awe-inspiring views, it’s all part of a great day out for you and your family in North Wales.

Travel to the Summit is between late spring and the end of October weather permitting. During the early season (April-May) trains will run to Clogwyn ¾ up the mountain, where the unsheltered viewing platform offers spectacular views to the valleys below. 

The railways exact opening and closing dates are dependent on weather conditions, please check the website for confirmation of operating dates.

Two services are available, the Heritage Steam Experience and the Traditional Diesel Service. Advance booking online is highly recommended.

Special ‘Early Bird’ offer available on the 9am return diesel service throughout the season.
