Christmas Glaslyn

Railway Event, from 18 Dec 2021

Porthmadog Harbour Station,
LL49 9NF




This December we will be running ‘Christmas Glaslyn’ services from Porthmadog – Beddgelert, providing an unforgettable Christmas outing!

Travelling the southern end of the Welsh Highland Railway, our ‘Christmas Glaslyn’ services begin at Porthmadog Harbour Station, where Spooner’s café will be open, allowing passengers to purchase seasonal refreshments prior to their departure.

Sit back and enjoy as the train journeys across the flatlands of the ‘Traeth Mawr’ estuary offering fantastic views of the Snowdonia mountains and along the high ledge in the well renowned Aberglaslyn Pass prior to the arrival at the interval stop at Beddgelert Station.

Here, there will be a short break, where the Loco will take on water giving passengers enough time to enjoy the views and take some photos, before setting back off on the return journey to Porthmadog.

The station gift shop will be open on your return, so you can purchase a memento of your day or perhaps a festive gift!

We will be offering both standard and first class seating on our ‘Christmas Glaslyn’ services.

Our ‘Christmas Glaslyn’ services will be running on the 18th, 19th, 22nd, 30th, 31st of December and the 1st of January.

On the 18th, 19th and 22nd of December, passengers can also book a visit to ‘Santa’s Carriage Grotto’ at Porthmadog Harbour Station.

‘Santa’s Carriage Grotto’ tickets must be booked separately to our ‘Christmas Glaslyn’ services.

*Please note; the ‘Christmas Glaslyn’ service is NOT a ‘Santa Train’ service… tickets for our Welsh Highland Railway ‘Santa Trains’ are available at the top of this page!
