This was a lovely sedate trip on a quaint little train conjuring up images of earlier years of outings and picnics. You must hop off and spend time at the Slate museum with demonstrations, hands on activities and marvellous history. Again, it’s all so close to access.
Beautiful. very relaxing and stopping off at the slate museum on the way back (which was free) was very interesting and worth doing. The staff in the coffee shop by the slate museum were friendly and cheerful. Toilets were free and enjoyed the demonstrations and history. Llanberis lake ralway was well worth the money.
Train takes you all around the lake beautiful sight didn't know it stopped halfway as you can take packed lunches and sit in the seating area next to the lake and spend and hour or two there if you wanted and catch the next train back will do that next time
The railway has changed since I last went. They used to recommend you have a picnic at the other end of the line and catch a later train back. But now they just give you 5mins stay and then tell you to get back on the train. I got off anyway as I know you can walk back along a trail further up the hill from the station. If you wish to walk back exit the station and walk directly up. There is a trail. A charity owns the land and wants you to use it. It's very nicely kept and there are seats. Walk up until you get to a white building. The white building used to be a cafe run by the charity but it closed due to the train company no longer telling visits it exists. It's a real shame. Anyway.. Walk round to the right of the building and you will come out to a tiny road. Walk along the road keeping the lake to your right. The road stops and becomes a walking trail. There are posts in the ground to keep you going the right way. Keep following these and you will come out at the slate museum. I think the walk takes around 40mins. There are some steep inclines but I found it pretty easy to walk.
