Railway Event, Fri 4 - Sun 6 Oct 2019

Harbour Station,
LL49 9NF


The Ffestiniog Railway is a living museum. We have been running passenger trains since Victorian times and many of those older vehicles have been lovingly preserved, so what better way to show them off than to have a weekend dedicated to that wonderful era?

Come along, take part, dress up or just soak up the nostalgia. This year's Victorian Vintage Weekend will be launched at 09:45 on Friday (although the trains will have started running well before then) when we're joined by around 100 children from our local primary school, Ysgol Eifion Wyn, who will be singing on the platform to entertain visitors.

The Victorian Railway will be brought to life with costumed characters, parading around the station, riding the trains and posing for photographs. Harbour Station car park will be filled with stalls selling a range of local produce, food and gifts... and this year, the sky's the limit - as there will be a fantastic Ferris Wheel ready and waiting to whisk you 'up, up and around' revealing superb views over the harbour and the town.

So, come along for a great family day-out, bring your camera - dress up in costume if you want - and step back in time with us ... We'd love to see you here!
