Very enjoyable, the staff were very friendly & helpful, & very informative about the history of the railway. The engine sheds are great for children to explore & look at the engines. Very enjoyable afternoon

We've visited this attraction 3 times now and can't fault the staff for their enthusiasm and helpfulness. One of the carriages is wheelchair accessible, and the staff couldn't do enough to help us on and off at each stop ( our eldest is in a wheelchair) We visited with our 4 boys aged 9 and under who were utterly thrilled...

An excellent morning spent at this attraction. We took our grandchildren and they loved it. A short train ride followed by a trip museum tour and a second train trip on a miniature railway. Not too costly for a family. Recommended for a trip if it is raining

A lovely short steam train ride with excellent staff who make you feel really welcome. Try out the cafe which serves superb home made specials.

Short train trip with great museum. Great way to spend an hour but tickets are valid all day. Our kids loved the interactive museum. Great and enthusiastic staff.

I cannot believe how many people have reviewed the wrong attraction! This is the one at the Criccieth end of town (the other one is at the Cob end). I thought this railway was great fun and so did the kids, but at £18.50 for an hour it is a touch pricey. We arrived at about 10.15 and had no... More

There seem to be confused reviews - I'm reviewing the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway which is a short train ride combined with a museum (not the Welsh Highland Railway which is a longer scenic journey). This was the second time we'd visited with our two boys and as before they had a great time. The journey is very short but... More

This is a lovely short ride that although is small compared to the Welsh Highland and Ffestiniog railways it is still worth a visit. The staff at the railway are the friendliest we have met in a long time. We had the opportunity to partake in many activity's, such as changing the points, which other railways don't let anyone take... More

I would say this railway is more for children than adults. Very nice staff who obviously know that they are 2nd in comparison to the more well known railway in town. The experience is more laid back as they let the kids up on the footplate which is great for them. The museum is very informative and a lot of... More
