Please complete our Visitor Survey
At the Bala Lake Railway we are really looking forward to the day that we can reopen and welcome visitors again…

As we prepare for this day, we would value your opinion on the measures that we need to put in place before we reopen…

To help us with this we would be really grateful if you could complete a short visitor survey that can be found by clicking here (opens external website).

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.

Bala Town Extension

The Bala Lake Railway Trust is raising £2.5 million as part of the Red Dragon Project to construct the extension of the Bala Lake Railway to Bala Town Station.

Important Announcements

Covid-19 / Coronavirus Update 26th June 2020

As we continue to work towards reopening the railway and implement Covid-19 Secure measures we are also reviewing our timetables and scheduled Special Events.

It is with much sadness that we have decided to cancel the Day with “Alice the Little Welsh Engine” that was scheduled for 1st August this year as we would be unable to run the event in a way that we would consider to be safe for our customers.

We are still working toward the possibility of limited trial opening from the week of 6th July, if circumstances permit, but there is still much work to be done and this date is still provisional at this stage.

In the meantime, if you haven’t already done so, we would be grateful if you could spare a few minutes to complete our online ‘Visitor Survey’ at https://bit.ly/BalaSurvey regarding the additional precautions that you would like to see in place prior to our reopening.
