The Llanberis Platform can be accessed via 2 steps or a ramp – our staff will be happy to give assistance where practicable.
All of our diesel carriages have ramped access for a manual wheelchair. It is advisable to pre-book on +44(0)1286 870 223 to guarantee a wheelchair space. Unfortunately, we are unable to carry wheelchairs on our Heritage Steam carriages.
Manual wheelchairs are available for customers with restricted mobility to use at Llanberis and the Summit Stations.
There is insufficient space in the carriages to accommodate prams, pushchairs, children’s car seats, walking frames, mobility scooters or folded wheelchairs. These items can be left, at the owner’s risk, at the platform in Llanberis.
Trains may terminate at Rocky Valley (just over halfway) or Clogwyn (three quarters of the way to the Summit). Neither of these destinations have toilet facilities. No passengers can disembark at Rocky Valley. Passengers using wheelchairs are able to exit the train at Clogwyn onto the platform. The terrain away from the platform at Clogwyn is mountainous and may not be suitable for wheelchair users.
We reserve the right to require persons who are unable to travel independently to be accompanied by an adult companion who is able to provide all necessary assistance and take full responsibility accordingly.
