Llanberis Lake Railway

Llanberis Lake Railway

Llanberis is one of the most popular places in the Snowdonia National Park, affording easy access to Mount Snowdon. Activities and attractions for every age feature in the area. Llanberis is a great base for walkers, and located close to the foot of Snowdon, with the Snowdon Mountain Railway offering travel to its peak. Wonderful scenic views can also be enjoyed from the Llanberis Lake Railway, which runs along the side of the Llyn Padarn lake for a leisurely steam train journey past Dolbadarn Castle.

Thrill-seekers and active holidaymakers can also take to the skies at the Ropes and Ladders high rope activity course. It’s for all over the age of eight, though a dedicated activity area offers plenty to keep children between four and seven occupied. Another great Llanberis day out can be enjoyed at the National Slate Museum, with exhibits and talks offering an insight into slate mining history. Also worth your time is the Electric Mountain attraction, providing tours of the Dinorwig Power Station with details about hydro-electric power.

For a romantic afternoon or evening, don’t forget to explore the lakeside restaurants serving meals overlooking the water. Llaberis offers activities for individuals, couples, families and walking groups, and we provide the chance to book accommodation in Llanberis before you arrive. Look for special offers, and save money on your stay.
