Passengers arriving by train to Portmadog on the Lleyn Peninsula in North Wales are transported along one of the most scenic mainline train lines in Britain. The Cambrian Line runs from Shrewsbury in Shropshire, England, through the dramatic Cambrian Mountains in central Wales and along the sweeping coastline of Cardigan Bay. Keep an eye out for spectacular bridge crossings at the Mawddach and Dwyryd rivers.
Once you arrive in Porthmadog, you're less than 10 minutes' walk from the town centre and harbour. Just across the road from the station is the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway, which connects with other heritage lines in the area to take visitors into the mountains of Snowdonia National Park. About three miles away from the station is the Italian-style fantasy village of Portmeirion - the popular tourist attraction famous for the brand of distinctive botanical pottery named after it and as the setting of the 1960's television show The Prisoner.
