Snowdon Mountain Railway, Llanberis

#1 of 10 in Tours in Llanberis
Climb aboard the Snowdon Mountain Railway and ride to the top of England and Wales' tallest peak. This tourist railway travels 7.6 km (4.7 mi) from Llanberis to the peak of Snowdon, 1,085 m (3,560 ft) above sea level. You'll enjoy expansive views of Snowdonia National Park, and if the weather's clear, the Wicklow Islands in Ireland and the Isle of Man. The railway has been in operation for over 100 years and makes the trip in even the harshest weather. You can buy a one-way ticket to the top and then hike back down. One-way tickets down are available on a standby, first-come first-served basis. On a round-trip journey, you'll have a half hour to walk around the summit. Make sure you dress appropriately for the weather at the top. Snowdon Mountain Railway is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Llanberis Edition.
