Places to visit

There is a warm welcome from the staff and volunteer’s of the Welsh Highland Railway which is one of North Wales premier attractions stretching from the historic Royal borough of Caernarfon, coast to coast across the foothills of Snowdon, and on to the harbour town of Porthmadog, a distance of some 25 miles. 
 This line was completed in 2011 after years of back breaking work by volunteers and is a credit to all of them. 
The line from Porthmadog to Ffestiniog is the original line where the slate was brought down by ‘gravity’ trains (no loco) all the way from the mines to the port for export by boats.


 Porthmadog, Gwynedd, LL49 9NF

Please help us to keep this wonderful railway running by visiting us, ride the trains, and listen to our public appeal. –  Thankyou
