Create memories for the whole family by taking a trip on the Snowdon Mountain Railway. Start your adventurous day out in Llanberis then ride on a heritage steam or traditional diesel service. As the only rack and pinion railway in the UK, we’ve been taking passengers on this awe-inspiring journey to the summit of Snowdon since 1896.

Experience a unique rail journey up to the summit of the highest mountain in Wales & England, a place of legend and mystery. Leave your walking boots at home and see for yourself why Snowdon Mountain Railway has been described as one of the most wonderful railway journeys in the world.

Once on the summit you can visit the café and visitor centre and of course get a picture on the Cairn that marks the top of the mountain, at 1085m above sea level.

Snowdon Mountain Railway is a seasonal attraction open from mid-March to the end of October (weather permitting). Pre-booking is advised as we do sell out during school holidays and spells of fine weather.

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.
