Snowdon is the highest peak in England and Wales. Standing at 3,506ft this majestic mountain dominates the landscape of North West Wales. Since 1896 people from all over the world have been able to reach the summit with ease, to enjoy magnificent panoramic views across Snowdonia and beyond by travelling on the Snowdon Mountain Railway.

Llanberis, affectionately known as the “Alpine village of Snowdon” offers its own unique charm, beautiful scenery and a selection of great visitor attractions which celebrate some of the rich cultural history and heritage of the area. The National Slate Museum tells the story of the Welsh slate mining industry and is just one highlight among many set within the 800-acre Padarn Country Park. The park is designated as an area of special scientific interest, due to some of the rare and ancient flora, fauna and wildlife that can be found here.

As North Wales outdoor and adventure sports capital, there’s sure to be an activity for you. Learn to rock climb at the nearby Beacons Climbing Centre, or enjoy paddling Llyn Padarn in a kayak or canoe. What better way to take in the glorious views of the valley up to the fearsome Llanberis Pass than to glide along the shimmering waters of this glacial lake.

Fun fact: The Swiss-built steam locomotive “Enid” has been in service on the Snowdon Mountain Railway since 1896 and in that time has covered a distance of over 3,075,200 kilometres! That is equal to four journeys to the moon and back! (Source: Snowdon Mountain Railway Website)
