Average duration: 3 hrs

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 up Snowdon, Yr Wyddfa, a journey experienced by some 12 million travellers since 1896. With stunning scenery and awe-inspiring views it’s all part of a great day out for you and your family in North Wales.

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

Snowdon Mountain Railway is a seasonal attraction open from 8th April to the 30th of October (weather permitting). Pre-booking is advised as we do sell out during school holidays and spells of fine weather. Snowdon Mountain Railway aims to reopen in mid-March 2023 weather permitting, the exact opening date will be confirmed next year.

Make Llanberis part of a whole day out on your Snowdonia 360 itinerary by visiting other nearby attractions such as the Llanberis Lake Railway and the National Slate Museum.
