Enjoy a private compartment with the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway

There’s no better way to view stunning Snowdonia and the beautiful coast than from the comfort of your very own private compartment on a heritage steam train.

And now one lucky couple will have the chance to do just that, as we’re offering the chance to win two tickets to travel on the Welsh Highland Railway’s Glaslyn Venturer service from Porthmadog to Beddgelert this October, with two delicious, individual hampers thrown in, all washed down with Prosecco. 

The journey across the flatlands of the ‘Traeth Mawr’ (the great estuary) offers wide vistas of the mountains of Snowdonia, before entering a tunnel and reappearing on a ledge high above the River Glaslyn in the Aberglaslyn Pass en route to Beddgelert.

The winners will then have roughly an hour to explore this pretty riverside village, with its shops, pubs and cafes, before embarking on the return journey.
