Departures leave Llanberis every day (weather permitting) from mid-March until the end of October every 30 minutes from 9am, subject to passenger demand.
During the early season (March and April) the normal destination is not the Summit but Clogwyn which is the 3/4 point on the mountain. The journey time to Clogwyn is approximately 45 minutes and passengers have the usual 30-minute stop-over at this unsheltered station. Please be aware that there are no facilities at Clogwyn, or on board the trains.
From May onwards our usual destination is Hafod Eryri Visitor Centre at the Summit of Snowdon. The return journey to the peak of the highest Mountain in Wales takes approximately two and a half hours, which includes a 30-minute stop-over before returning to Llanberis.
Pre-booked tickets are available for collection from our Llanberis Ticket Office 30 minutes before departure. We do not post out pre-booked tickets. Why not arrive a little earlier and enjoy our Victorian shopping experience, spend some time in our Film Theatre, or enjoy a bite to eat in our Station Buffet or Platform Grill before you board your train?
