Outstanding scenery, comfortable carriages and historic steam engines await you in the heart of Snowdonia. Glorious coastline, ancient woodlands, mountains, rivers and the magnificent Caernarfon castle, all beckon as you embark from Caernarfon, Porthmadog or Blaenau Ffestiniog on a journey on the historic Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways.

We’re an ideal day out for families and couples alike and our passengers ride in some of the most comfortable carriages on any heritage railway in the UK. There’s even an option to travel in first class Pullman luxury with freshly cooked food delivered to your seat.

As both the oldest and the longest heritage railway company in the world still operating trains, we know a bit about what makes a journey special. Even a short trip on our railways will help you unwind – so much so, we think you’ll want to do it all over again.

With a choice of 20 starting points for your journey, and a wealth of different journey options and landscapes to cater for most itineraries, ours really are the railways with something for everyone.

Come and enjoy a day with us – steam, scenery and Snowdonia’s coast and mountains all in one delightful package.
