The Vale of Rheidol Railway recreates the Edwardian Spirit of Adventure as it follows the twists and turns of the stunning Rheidol Valley. Your steam hauled journey takes you through ancient woodlands and rugged mountain scenery as the train climbs from the coast at Aberystwyth to Devil’s Bridge in the Cambrian Mountains.

Opened in 1902 the railway has been delighting passengers for generations. Birds of prey, such as Red Kite and Buzzards, can be seen soaring above the valley floor and breathtaking views enjoyed by all.

Regular departures throughout the year. See timetables on our website.

Evening excursions during July and August.
