CROESO I REILFFORDD LLANGOLLEN

Welcome to Llangollen Railway

Yr unig Reilffordd lled safonol yng Ngogledd Cymru

Llangollen Railway is the only standard gauge heritage railway in North Wales.

We are located beside the historic Dee Bridge (built in 1345) in the centre of Llangollen town. The journey is a relaxing 10 miles travelling through the stunning Dee Valley to the lovely town of Corwen the crossroads of North Wales.

Rheilffordd Llangollen yw’r unig reilffordd lled safonol yng Ngogledd Cymru. Lleolir pen y rheilffordd ger pont hanesyddol yr Afon Dyfrdwy (a adeiladwyd yn 1345) yng nghanol tref Llangollen. Mae’r siwrnai ar hyd y lein yn daith deng milltir o hyd lle y gallwch ymlacio wrth edrych ar ysblander dyffryn Dyfrdwy cyn cyrraedd tref hynafol Corwen, croesfan enwog yng Ngogledd Cymru.

Our small section of line, which in its day went from Ruabon to Barmouth taking people to the seaside on holiday and transporting various goods including slate and chemicals, offers a sample of the sights and sounds of yesteryear. The line follows the picturesque River Dee, classed as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), for its entire length, passing through some of the finest natural beauty North Wales has to offer.

The railway is located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and this is evident as the train gently meanders through the Dee Valley. The views from our carriages are breathtaking and constantly changing from season to season, you will see the first spring lambs and the ever changing colours of the beautiful vista
