B E W A R E ....................... !!!

Car Parking in Snowdonia is very limited and can be expensive if a space can be found
This is especially so at Caernarfon, Beddgelert and Porthmadog

The alternative is to leave your car behind and use the
Arriva "5-5C" and "X5-5C" through buses
which connect from Llandudno (via the North Wales Coast road) with the
Welsh Highland Railway at Caernarfon

At the other end of the line the Ffestiniog Railway and Arriva "3B" buses link for Blaenau Ffestiniog where
Conwy Valley trains and Llew Jones "X19" buses
connect back to Llandudno on both weekdays and Sundays

Alternatively use the Snowdon Sherpa Bus network
which connects with the
Welsh Highland Railway at Beddgelert from the North Wales Coast
via Betws-y-Coed, Pen-y-Pass and the scenic Nant Gwynant pass

Please note the Welsh Highland Railway does not run every day
outside the main Summer period
nor does every train run on the dates the railway is open

You are strongly advised to first consult the official WHRly website to confirm
the train(s) you want are actually scheduled to run on the date of your
proposed visit then use the timetable below to find the times of the connecting
Snowdon Sherpa or other bus(es)

Connections from Llandudno via the Ffestiniog Railway from Blaenau Ffestiniog
are also shown - but please note some of these do not run every day
outside the main Summer period
You are strongly advised to first consult the official FRly website to confirm
the train(s) you want are actually scheduled to run on the date of your
proposed visit then use the timetable below to find the times of the
connecting Snowdon Sherpa bus(es)/trains


LATEST..........
Arriva has amended their weekday "1B" connecting service betweeen Blaenau Ffestiniog and Porthmadog..........
..........and in future all journeys will be re-numbered "3B"

This website also contains composite timetables of connecting Snowdon Sherpa services on a cross-Snowdonia route basis
where a change of bus is usually necessary --- hopefully it will help you plan your days out

It also includes some suggested "trips round Snowdonia - without your car"

  I M P O R T A N T   ! ! !

You are strongly advised to first consult the official WHRly website to confirm the train(s) you want to travel on
