How to Get Here

By Train

Unfortunately Llanberis’ only train stations are for the Lake Railway and the Snowdon Mountain Railway! However, our closest train stations are at Bangor - Gwynedd (BNG) and Betws-y-Coed (BYC) which can both bring you to Llanberis via bus (see below) or taxi (we recommend Snowdonia Taxi). Both stations are situated on main train lines accessed from all over the UK, changing at Chester or Crewe most usually.

By Car

The M56/A55 will bring you to North Wales along dual carriageways and the M54/A5 will take you through the beautiful scenic mountains and passes often featured in world class TV and films. If you are driving up the Welsh coast from South Wales, then follow the A470 and then A487 to Caernarfon.

By Coach

National Express services run to Llandudno, Conwy, Bangor, and Holyhead from London, Chester and Manchester from as little as £10. Arriva Buses Wales operate services to Caernarfon, Bangor and Porthmadog, see below for onward travel.

Local Buses to Llanberis

By Bike

If you enjoy cycling why not use pedal power to come to the beautiful, bike-friendly Snowdonia Mountains and Coast by following the National Cycle Network. Quiet, traffic-calmed and traffic-free routes create easy access from the surrounding area and further afield.

By Air

Transfers from the international gateways of Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham take less than two hours. A new air route between Cardiff International Airport and Anglesey Airport takes just under an hour.

By Sea

Irish Ferries and Stena Line operate regular and high-speed services to Holyhead from Dublin and Dun Laoghaire. For southern Snowdonia, ferry services into Fishguard and Pembroke Dock are a handy alternative.
