The Victorian town of Llandrindod Wells is perched seven hundred feet above sea level, surrounded by beautiful countryside and makes a charming base for our thrilling train-themed itinerary. In your free time, perhaps follow the leafy trails in Rock Park, view the artefacts at Radnorshire Museum or simply relax and watch the birds on the lake. We venture out to experience nostalgic train journeys while feasting our eyes on spectacular scenery. Wales is blessed with a number of working smaller gauge railways and these ‘Great Little Trains’ often traverse astonishingly steep inclines and are a tribute to the engineers who built the lines.
