Take a Steam Train Ride in Wales

For me, no trip to Wales is complete without a ride on a steam train.


From Llangollen in the north to Carmarthen in the south, a steam train ride is never far away. Take a ride on the famous Great Little Trains of Wales , 11 narrow gauge railways that played a vital role in the country’s industrial past – especially slate mining in Snowdonia.


Take a standard gauge ride on lines closed in the 1960s, like the Llangollen Railway or jump on the train to the top of Snowdon, the highest point in England or Wales.


Whatever you choose make sure to take a camera to capture shots of the beautiful Wales countryside.
