Blaenau Ffestiniog

Blaenau Ffestiniog is famous as being the town that roofed the world and was once the slate capital of Wales

It is the northern terminus of the Ffestiniog Railway, and also features some of the best adventure attractions anywhere in the UK – zip wires, mountain bike tracks and even underground trampolines.

A ride to our historic harbour side station at Porthmadog takes just over an hour…

…and there’s something for everyone – some great shops and cafes, a fascinating maritime museum and terrific views. Relax in our award-winning pub and restaurant, or soak up the sunshine on our patio with a cold drink while gleaming steam trains bustle past.

A return to beautiful Tan y Bwlch takes just half an hour in each direction. This peaceful location features woodland and lakeside walks, plus our own café featuring delicious home-made cakes and pastries with a kid’s play area alongside.

For the more adventurous, why not travel to Porthmadog, then change to the Welsh Highland for the trip to Beddgelert, passing through the stunning Aberglaslyn Pass? Beddgelert could well be the prettiest village in Snowdonia, set in stunning scenery with a wide range of shops, pubs and cafes and is less than 40 minutes from Porthmadog. Visit the grave of Gelert, the faithful hound of legend and explore the village that was the inspiration for the adventures of Rupert Bear.

The best British train journey ever! - This railway is fantastic. I cannot imagine a much better train journey in the UK. We each sat in a large comfortable armchair with a great view. My kids loved it as did I
Magical as ever. Great day had with breathtaking views on one of Wales's finest tourist attractions! Staff are very welcoming and friendly and doggie came on board the train too.
This is an excellent scenic experience enhanced by kind and caring staff and volunteers. The whole visit could not have been improved in any way and is to be very highly recommended.
