With no less than three unique rail journeys this is a tour to be enjoyed by anyone with a love of beautiful scenery or those of us who simply like to sit back and watch the world go by from the tracks.

Itinerary

Monday We leave Cornwall in the morning and travel to Wales with a stop for lunch on the way.

Tuesday Our first rail experience will be the Welsh Highland Railway. We board in the historic village of Beddgelert and for the next hour and a half we wind our way through wonderful scenery into the heart of Snowdonia National Park. Our journey ends in Caernarfon, a grand medieval town perched on the coastline which is home to the most famous castle in Wales. There will be time to explore.

Wednesday Today we enjoy a ride through the countryside on the Ffestiniog Railway, considered to be one of Wales’s best-loved ‘Great Little Trains’ it was originally built to carry slate. During the day we visit Blaenau Ffestiniog and the pretty village of Betws-y-Coed.

Thursday This morning we take the trip of a lifetime on the Snowdon Mountain Railway. This rack and pinion railway carries us to the summit of the highest mountain in Wales and England. This mountain is a place of legend and affords magnificent, memorable views. Later in the day we have free time in the lakeside town of Llanberris.

Friday Saying goodbye to Wales we make our journey home to Cornwall.
