Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Take a step back in time at the Gwili Steam Railway, a delightful preserved railway just outside Carmarthen in West Wales. Running steam train services every day of local school holidays and selected days throughout the remainder of the year, this is the perfect trip for all ages to enjoy. Experience a typical country branch line from the 1950s with a stop off at Llwyfan Cerrig Station in a beautiful spot alongside the River Gwili.

“Dont waste your cash”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

What to say .We went down last weekend with the 2 little ones as father xmas was there .it is very costly for such a short train trip and the seats were very dirty but the kids liked the short train ride but father christmas was not a happy one with the kids and then to top it off the present that my son had was in damp wrapping paper and also broken so he wasant very happy so i would avoid this over-priced place and spend your hard earned cash elsewhere.

Terrible service, exspensive ticket for very short trip, food was bland and unexciting, kids did not enjoy and neither did we.
