Train Rides from Berwyn Station
Llangollen Railway is the only standard gauge heritage railway in North Wales. The journey is a relaxing 10 miles travelling through some of the most beautiful scenery in Wales. The line, located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), remains close to the waters of the river for most of its length as it gently meanders through the Dee Valley. The views from the carriages are breathtaking and constantly changing from season to season!
All the stations along the track are of a typical Victorian design and each station has been recreated in a 1950s Great Western colour scheme. In its day it carried people to the seaside on holiday and transported various goods including slate and chemicals. Today it is a premier tourist attraction of North Wales.
Depart from the iconic Berwyn station, restored back to its Edwardian glory by a small group of dedicated railway volunteers. It was built for the convenience of local landowners in 1865 and from those times it has continued to be a popular stop for holidaymakers and tourists to the Dee Valley, due to its close proximity to the Horseshoe Falls, the Chain Bridge, its associated hotel and the Canal.
Travel to Glyndfrdwy, which was reopened by the heritage railway in 1993. Glyndyfrdwy is the home of Owain Glyndwr. It was here in 1400 that he proclaimed himself Prince of Wales, thereby starting the rebellion against the English Crown. Today in the Owain Glyndwr Memorial Hall can be seen artefacts associated with him.
Travel to Carrog Station, which was painstakingly restored by volunteers to how it was originally in the 1950s. At the Station there is a friendly tea room, which serves a variety of freshly made snacks and homemade cakes, as well as tea, coffee and soft drinks. The station car park also provides parking space for a touring coach. The station has full disabled access.
Llangollen station is located next to the town centre; this is the original station that was re-opened in 1975 by the Flint and Deeside Railway Preservation Society with just 60 feet (18.3m) of track.
