The Llanberis Lake Railway is one of several great attractions in Llanberis, the lakeside village at the foot of Snowdon. There’s so much to see and do, and something for everyone. The new Ropes and Ladders high wire course for the more adventurous; an ancient Castle, a Power Station hidden deep inside a mountain, and reminders of the once thriving slate industry in the Old Quarry Hospital and National Slate Museum. Then there’s the picturesque Padarn Country Park with its waymarked woodland and lakeside walks, and various activities including boat trips and rowing boats on Lake Padarn. And of course the best way to get from one to another is aboard our little train.
Amerton Railway has lots of going on in the 2018 season which starts at Easter and runs till the end of October ! : Look out for Santa coming to Amerton on Saturdays and Sundays in December : Kids get a present & mum & dad get a sherry and a warm mince !
