Snowdon Mountain Railway
Ever wanted to travel to the peak of England and Wales? Take a trip along the stunningly scenic 4.7-mile tourist railway that travels to Snowdon Mountains.
If a train didn’t tickle your fancy, how about a boat ride across the Llangollen Canal over the valley of the River Dee! Beautiful views.
