Welcome...
...to a Rail Journey on the Conwy Valley Line
From the North Wales Coast...
...To the Heart of Snowdonia

Welcome to a Rail Journey on the Conwy Valley Line from the North Wales Coast to the Heart of Snowdonia.The Conwy Valley line, part of the National Rail Network, runs alongside one of the great rivers of Wales, the Conwy and continues along the banks of the turbulent river Lledr after it’s confluence with the Conwy at Betws-y-Coed.

From your departure at Llandudno to your arrival at Blaenau Ffestiniog a breathtaking range of scenery unfolds before your eyes, from the historic castle at Conwy, through estuary rich in wildlife, to gentle slopes that give way to majestic crags as the train crosses the Lledr by the dramatic Gethin’s viaduct.

You glimpse fairytale landscapes, the imposing 12th century Dolwyddelan Castle, ancient quarries and tracks, forests and the high peaks of Snowdonia before entering the heart of the mountain to emerge some minutes later in the imposing and historic industrial landscape of Blaenau Ffestiniog, the very centre of Wales’ slate quarrying and mining industry.

The Conwy Valley line at 27 miles long offers one of the most beautiful rail experiences in Britain.
