Travelled on the steam train with a coach party. We had a lovely ploughman's on board. It went through some lovely countryside. It is dog friendly which was good.

Brilliant experience. Lovely route with some beautiful stops en route to Porthmadog. There are some really nice shops in Porthmadog or if you prefer there is a beautiful village called Bedgellert that you can visit. It has lots of small coffee shops and pubs.

One of the many steam train stations. Does have a view to the sea, too! Well worth the effort and you can clearly see that it's been recently renovated.
