Escorted British Train Tours:
Preserved Lines and Steam Trains in Britain
Recapture the romantic age of steam and travel on some of the countrys best preserved railways. Steam Train Journeys
We have 14 scenic railways in Wales. They were built years ago to transport Welsh slate and people and share a common charm of old time steam trains with plenty of paintwork and polished brass. Most of them are pretty old which is why they go so slow but at least it means you can enjoy the magnificent scenery.
Great Little Trains of Wales Experience the nostalgic pleasures and romance of steam travel whilst exploring the Welsh countryside on this historic railways holiday. Highlights will include the famous narrow gauge Ffestiniog Railway. Ride the narrow gauge steam railway from Blaenau Ffestiniog to Porthmadog. Here you can change for the newly-rebuilt Welsh Highland Railway which runs via Beddgelert to Caernarvon. Enjoy a ride to the summit of Britains Highest Railway station on Snowdon, with unsurpassed views, and the LLanberis Lake Railway with its unrivalled views of the mountains of Snowdonia from viewpoints inaccessible by road. If youve not walked to the summit, the Snowdon Mountain Railway is an exhilarating way to reach the highest point in England and Wales.
You will be based in Conwy, North Wales. The fanciful turreted house of Bryn Corach has hosted our holidays since 1913. From its splendid elevated position there are sweeping views over the historic walled town of Conwy and across the bay to Great Ormes Head, and to the mountains of Snowdonia. Conwy is located on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park; a magnificent landscape of high mountains and dramatic scenery. Just 10 minutes walk from Bryn Corach, the walled town of Conwy is bustling with character and history. With its famous castle and well-preserved town walls it is justifiably popular with visitors. The town has a good range of facilities including shops, pubs, cafes and banks.
Getting there: Most guests alight at Llandudno Junction, about 1½ miles from Bryn Corach, which is served by direct trains from London, Manchester and Crewe. There is a nearer station in Conwy itself (½ mile uphill walk to Bryn Corach), which is generally served by slower local trains. For train times and ticket prices see: www.nationalrail.co.uk.
