Recommendations for the best sceneries or train ride

Hi everyone,

Me and my mum have 2 days to spend in Wales .

We have shortlisted mountain train for the first day .

We need recommendations for the second day .

My mum can’t walk much due to arthritis that’s why I was looking for another train ride to go round the area .

We both love nature and scenery. There are couple of trains mentioned on the Wales website but They didn’t mention the duration and timing . Also I don’t know the area so Can’t decide which one will be better.

Please advise me

Thanks in anticipation.

have a look at the Great Orme tram at Llandudno, it is a nice short ride with good views and a cafe at the top.

Or the Ffestiniog is a lovely day out, from the harbour town of Porthmadog up into the mountains.

If it's not the one you've already mentioned then I would reccomend the Llanberis Lake Railway.

Thank you very much . I think probably my mum will like the lake railway .

how much time I need for lake railway. Are there multiple stations on the way ? Or it goes to the other end without stopping? Any opportunity for the boating at the lake on any stop ?

The Llanberis Lake Railway is pretty, and the Slate Museum is also very much worth a visit. It's free and you can easily combine the two into a few hours.
