Beautiful Welsh Countryside
Rheilffordd Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake Railway) offers a delightful 9 mile return journey alongside Bala Lake, through the beautiful Snowdonia National Park. Our narrow gauge steam trains give excellent views of the lake amid its surrounding scenery including the nearby mountains of Arenig Fawr, Aran Benllyn and Aran Fawddwy. Visit the Your Journey page to find out more.

Covid-19 Restrictions

It is a requirement of the Welsh Government that our passengers wear face coverings whilst travelling on our trains and in all our indoor spaces including our shop/café, toilets, and Heritage Centre.

Children under the age of 11 are exempt and are not required to wear face coverings.
