Travellers heading to Wales this spring will soon be able to take advantage of the reopening of the Snowdon Mountain Railway (SMR) for the new season.
The attraction will open on March 17th, enabling visitors to enjoy a scenic journey from Llanberis to the Clogwyn Station and if the weather is milder than expected, trains will run to the summit station, just below the 3,560 ft peak.
Passengers will be able to take in sights ranging from ancient forests and waterfalls to spectacular views across the Snowdonia mountain range as they make their way to the top.
The summit is also home to a visitor centre - the highest building in Wales and England - where visitors can learn all about the history of Mount Snowdon.
Travellers from Ireland can easily get to the SMR by taking one of the available ferries from Dublin to Holyhead
and either driving the 48 miles to Snowdon or using public transport to get there.
Visitors to the town can also ride on the nearby Llanberis Lake Railway to enjoy a leisurely steam train ride past the 13th century Dolbadarn Castle.
