Holiday Parks in Snowdonia: Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways

What’s On with Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways?

North Wales is synonymous with plenty of great sights and sounds but perhaps it doesn’t quite get the recognition it deserves for its services in keeping traditional steam trains alive and well. One organisation that do all they can to deliver the traditional transport to the public is Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways.

If you’re staying with us at West Point holiday parks in Snowdonia, there are some great days out with the popular service that you have to check out over the coming month.


Jazz in the Park – 21st of August
Jazz fan? Then climb aboard for a fantastic day out which celebrates the smoothest of music styles. Dr Jazz will be performing all of the crowd favourites at Tan Y Bwlch station so don’t miss out. Oh, and as if you needed any more incentive, there will also be a delicious BBQ.


Tea & Fun in the Park at Tan Y Bwlch – 25th of August
In the last of a series of great events, experience Tea & Fun in the Park if you get off at Tan Y Bwlch.
