Top Trips from Blaenau Ffestiniog

A ride to our historic harbour side station at Porthmadog takes just over an hour...

...and there's something for everyone - some great shops and cafes, a fascinating maritime museum and terrific views. Relax in our award-winning pub and restaurant, or soak up the sunshine on our patio with a cold drink while gleaming steam trains bustle past.

A return to beautiful Tan y Bwlch takes just half an hour in each direction. This peaceful location features woodland and lakeside walks, plus our own café featuring delicious home-made cakes and pastries with a kid's play area alongside.

For the more adventurous, why not travel to Porthmadog, then change to the Welsh Highland for the trip to Beddgelert, passing through the stunning Aberglaslyn Pass? Beddgelert could well be the prettiest village in Snowdonia, set in stunning scenery with a wide range of shops, pubs and cafes and is less than 40 minutes from Porthmadog. Visit the grave of Gelert, the faithful hound of legend and explore the village that was the inspiration for the adventures of Rupert Bear.
