you can enjoy amazing views without getting tired. Its perfect for those who don't like or can't take long walks but want to enjoy beautiful views of Snowdonia. Loved it! MAKE SURE YOU WEAR WARM COAT AND A HAT as there is very windy on the top!

Even on a sunny but cold day, the Lake trip is a lovely one especially for kids. Disappointed that the lake train itself really only goes up and down the same line and not around the lake as we had hoped, but it was still fun for the kids. Parking is £4 - worth noting even for those planning on... More

We went on this railway during our stay in the Easter holidays. You are not able to book tickets on the website for the same day so we called up and they had plenty of slots available for the day. I felt the price was a bit expensive, although we saved a bit as we bought a family ticket. This... More

Me and my family went to the lake railway on holiday and were surprised to hear that they had built in an easter egg trail which was the best of the holiday. the journey itself (providing you visit on a clear day) delivers brilliant views and the ability to open the windows and take on the smoke smell and fully...

Three of us on a day out took this train around the lake. We got there early and managed to bag the front carriage, just behind to the driver. It's a lovely little steam train, with wooden interiors and big windows. The views are brilliant! It took just the right amount of time: not too long. We didn't go right... More

A pleasant ride on a train down the side of Llyn Padarn with a couple of short stops. We got off to visit the Slate Museum and back on to finish the journey. Nice steam locomotives and the children enjoyed it. I however find it hard to recocile the journey to the cost, a family ticket and two concessions total... More

Enjoyed our Train ride today. Perfect for our 3yr old who enjoyed being close to the lake, seeing the goats and listening to the trains whistle and steam. We got on in Lanberis and got off at the museum on our way back.

We didn't expect the railway to be running so planned a walk in the area. Luckily we noticed the steam and had an enjoyable ride on the train. The staff were very pleasant and the views of Snowdon terrific.

The train was real nice just to see views of the lake. We saw a lot of sheep and it was quite nice as it stopped at museums and had breaks so you could explore places . The views were very scenic and gorgeous which was very ideal for your money and a very nice stroll through the fields seeing... More
