Welcome to the Talyllyn Railway
Your personal railway adventure…
… steam through the charming Fathew valley in Snowdonia National Park on the Talyllyn Railway, the world’s first preserved railway. Your comfortable carriage pulled by a historic steam engine will take you past streams and waterfalls, through a remote and beautiful valley in the Merioneth mountains oozing Celtic mystery – discover an amazing, timeless landscape
Experience the nostalgia of historic steam trains in some of Wales’ finest countryside. The railway starts on the coast at Tywyn, snakes through the foothills of Cader Idris to Dolgoch Falls, Abergynolwyn and Nant Gwernol.
The train clings to the hillside as it passes through woodland and over ravines. The trip takes about an hour each way. Your ticket allows you to break your journey and extend your day: you could take a country walk, explore wooded paths, discover waterfalls or visit the beach.
Tywyn Wharf station is home to the Narrow Gauge Railway Museum, which tells the story of little railways across Britain, and King’s Cafe has hot and cold menus, lunch time specials and a licensed bar. Quarryman’s Tea Room at Abergynolwyn serves a range of refreshments and light bites.
