Llanberis Lake Railway

Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

Wanted to take in a steam train journey while in the region but restricted by having a dog and unwilling to pay the hefty prices of the Snowdonia, Ffestiniogg or Welsh Highland Railways. This was a cheaper compromise on a day out when we also took in the adjacent lake cruise and Slate Museum. Sure it's much less dramatic than the other trains and simply potters up one side of a lake and back again but it's reasonably priced, friendly staff and very enjoyable. Seats are hard and slightly cramped. Also be aware that this is not a train to anywhere. You just get a few minutes at a pleasant picnic site. The journey itself is the experience.

What a great little find this wonderful railway journey was. It was a brilliantly hot and sunny day, so the views across the lake to the stunning mountains of the Snowdonia National Park were breathtaking. We had 2 short stops on the return journey that made for great photo opportunities. I really enjoyed this trip and can’t recommend it highly enough.

If you want a journey on a steam train alongside a beautiful lake, with a mountainous backdrop, then I suggest you try here, because there aren't many other places you will find it in the UK.

The carriages are clean and well maintained, the staff are friendly and informative, and let our little one stand on the engine footplate for a photo with the driver, and the scenery in Llanberis is absolutely stunning. What a beautiful place. Visit, and take it in, I recommend it to all.

Hubby and I are used to working with full size steam trains so enjoyed a holiday visiting the Great Little Trains of Wales. This railway, as the name suggests, runs gently alongside the lake and back. There's one station at a picnic are with wonderful views of the lakes and mountains of Snowdonia. Very friendly staff, good cafe and souvenir shop.

This was such fun, a narrow gauge train winding it's leisurly way round the lake. The engine driver is a cheerful soul and waves to all, regardless of age!
