Out and about
It's not just our seashores and spectacular scenery that makes this part of Wales so popular. Visitors can also enjoy a wealth of attractions and places to visit.
Days Out By Train
One of the most scenic railway lines in the whole of Britain, the Cambrian Coast Line is a superb way to explore the beautiful and varied Gwynedd Coastline.
Discover busy seaside resorts, tiny coastal villages, steam railways, vast sandy beaches and no end of views along the way.
Trains run approximately every 2 hours (Monday - Saturday) but infrequently on a Sunday. A full timetable is available from most staffed stations across the network or a copy can be collected from Reception.
We have compiled a brief guide to each station along the Cambrian Coast Line.
Corris Craft Centre and King Arthur's Labyrinth
A fantastic place to see talented crafts people at work in a host of independent retail units. The craft centre is great for all the family - there is chance to paint pottery, design cards and make candles. Based here is King Arthur's Labyrinth, an unforgettable adventure unfolds as you sail along the underground river, through the great waterfall and caverns into the past.
There is plenty for the railway enthusiast in the area - the nearest to the Trefeddian is the Talyllyn Railway in Tywyn.
