Roadworks 2022

National Grid are replacing the existing underground cables between Dinorwig power station and the substation at Pentir.

Roadworks will be in place between the A4086 in Llanberis continuing westward along the A4086. The road will remain open using a temporary traffic light system.

There is a temporary closure at the top of Llanberis High Street where it meets the A4086. Traffic will be diverted with alternative routes clearly marked.

Similar roadworks will begin on the A4244 between Brynrefail and Pentir Substation on the B4547.

If you’re visiting us, please allow extra time for your journey as traffic can build up during busy periods.

The latest up-to-date information on this project can be found on the National Grid website.

Llanberis Station

A warm Welsh welcome awaits you at Snowdon Mountain Railway, in the picturesque village of Llanberis. Visitors have been coming here to experience this unique railway since 1896, soaking up the sights and sounds of billowing steam in the heart of Snowdonia. Today’s visitor can do the same and relax in our flower-lined forecourt, taking in the views of the surrounding mountains, before they begin their journey up through the clouds to Yr Wyddfa, Snowdon.

Gift Shop

Our station gift shop is housed in the original Booking Hall from 1896. The original beams are exposed, and Victorian shop fittings were sourced to enhance the stations heritage. The shop has a selection of authentic Welsh products including locally crafted ales and spirits, unique Snowdon Mountain Railway souvenirs, clothing and Celtic jewellery.
