Since 1896 Snowdon Mountain Railway has been welcoming visitors to the little village at the foot of Snowdon, Llanberis in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, to experience the awe inspiring journey by rack railway to the summit of Snowdon the highest mountain in Wales and England.
From the moment you leave the station your train will begin the journey upwards to the clouds, a journey experienced by some 12 million intrepid travellers since 1896. If you are lucky enough to have tickets on the “Snowdon Lily” your carriage will be pushed by one of our original 1896 steam locomotives and you will immediately begin to hear the noble engine exerting its effort as you climb upwards and on towards the roof of the principality. From the first glimpse of the waterfall in Llanberis to the point at which your train crests the mountain 60 minutes later you will have been surrounded by the views and the experience that is Eryri , the land of the Eagles.
We're currently closed and will be open again mid-March
Our trains will start running again mid-March 2017 (weather permitting). For the early part of the season, trains will run to Clogwyn (3/4 up the mountain). Travel to the summit will commence in May 2017 (weather permitting).
Tickets can be booked in advance online or by calling our ticket office on 01286 870 223 (after 1pm).
