The steam-hauled narrow gauge Ffestiniog Railway runs from the picturesque harbour town of Porthmadog, through the Snowdonia National Park, to the historic slate mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog. On their journey, the trains pass through tranquil pastures and forests, past lakes and waterfalls, round horseshoe bends and even round a complete spiral, sometimes clinging to the mountainside, sometimes tunnelling through it.

During the journey the trains stop at little stations and halts from which fascinating nature trails and walks begin. A journey on the railway can be a day out in itself, or a delightful way to visit other local attractions.
