Heritage Railways in Wales

Heritage Railways in Wales

If you're planning on camping or touring in Wales then, chances are, you don't need to be 'sold' on the beauty of the region, its woodlands, hills, mountains and stunning coastline. Well, these pages are dedicated to a method of transport ideal for experiencing this landscape from a different, fresher perspective: under the power of steam. Across the magnificence of this fair nation, heritage railways in Wales have been lovingly and painstakingly restored, providing nostalgic forays into the past through some of the most fabulous scenery.

Some of these steam railways in Wales curve up from the North coast, snaking into the mountains, with backdrops of castles, snow-clad peaks and mountain lakes. Other lines whoosh through lushious rolling countryside, connecting pretty villages and interesting market towns, in themselves well worth a stop and an explore before making the return journey. Feel the power of traditional steam locomotives, indulge yourself in a traditional station-side tea room and explore the history on display at the on-site museums. With 'unlimited on the day or purchase' travel, a family ticket for one of these Welsh steam railways will make a day to remember and an ideal centrepiece activity to your Welsh camping trip.
