Lovely journey on the train along the lakeside, we cought the last train so it was pretty quiet. We didnt realise they had picnic spots etc at the end of the line. Would be lovely here on a sunny day. We also seen loads of people in swimming so it must be safe enough. For the train enthusiast these a... More

We visited Llanberis Lake Railway while enjoying this beautiful area, and celebrating my birthday. This little steam train ride along the side of the lake was brilliant and thoroughly enjoyable. The staff, from the lady who sold the tickets to all those who were involved gave a very professional approach to their positions. It compliments the other attractions in this... More

A nice little trip up the shore of the lake but always disappointed with a short out and back line. Enjoyable on a sunny day up to the picnic area but other lines are better to be honest.

With no inkling of what a lovely day it would be we booked a trip up the Snowdon Mountain Railway on the 1.30pm train but - seeing the forecast - decided to get up to Llanberis early and ride alongside the lake first. It is rare,... More

This was a really lovely train ride around Llanberis Lake and the scenery was spectacular! We were lucky enough to have a clear sunny day so managed to get some wonderful photographs of the mountains from across the lake.

My husband and I took our 7 year old, 2 year old and newborn on the lake railway and had a great time! The journey is relatively short and has a few breaks in it to allow you to jump out and stretch your legs. Most people used this as an opportunity to take photos of the train\scenery. The length...
