Find Accommodation near 'Talyllyn Railway'


The Talyllyn Railway is a narrow-gauge steam railway that runs from Tywyn to Abergynolwyn and Nant Gwernol and passes Dolgoch Falls on its way through the picturesque Mid Wales countryside.

There is ramped access down into the Museum at Tywyn Wharf Station and a second designated toilet is located at Abergynolwyn Station where there is a cafe with wheelchair access.

Our researchers travelled up to Abergynolwyn Station and alighted to enjoy some refreshments in the cafe before making the return journey.  The views from the carriage windows across the surrounding landscape were beautiful and varied.

Please note some of the stations on the line have no access for wheelchair users and the path to Dolgoch Falls is not wheelchair accessible.

A very detailed access statement is available on the railways website.
