Visited here with my partner as we both wanted to go to the peak of Snowdon but aren’t keen walkers. Glad we did take the train now.
The price was reasonable I thought rather than having to walk 5 miles up to the top.
In Anglesey for the school half term. If you haven't pre-booked and it's a lovely day, make sure you are there by 9.30am as the trains sell out fast.
Nice trip up, great views as a sunny day, but windows got steamed up quickly.
On a recent trip to Snowdonia I was hoping to use this railway as I have never climbed Snowdon. Sadly was unable to go as no dogs were allowed. Such a shame as I was really looking forward to this

This is always a great outing regardless of the weather. There is something mystical about Snowdon. Pity the clouds didn't lift again for this our third trip up. Maybe next time! More time at the summit would be an improvement.
Wonderful experience, great little railway with informative staff could not be more helpful. Booked the tickets on the internet,so went to collect on the day and that was so simple.Just one criticism is that 30mins at the top is tight by the time you have...More
Snowdon mountain railway is a must when you visit Wales, it was a definite on my bucket list and I was not disappointed. Got tickets on the diesel coach on a bright sunny day and was absolutely mesmerized by the beauty of the mountains. The...More
