The Conwy Valley Railway takes you on a journey from the North Wales Coast to the Heart of Snowdonia National Park.<br><br> The Conwy Valley line, part of the National Rail Network, runs alongside one of the great rivers of Wales, the Conwy and continues along the banks of the turbulent river Lledr after it's confluence with the Conwy at Betws-y-Coed. Our picture shows the Conwy Valley Line at Betws-y-coed. From your departure at Llandudno to your arrival at Blaenau Ffestiniog a breathtaking range of scenery unfolds before your eyes, from the historic castle at Conwy, through estuary rich in wildlife, to gentle slopes that give way to majestic crags as the train crosses the Lledr by the dramatic Gethin's viaduct.<br><br> You glimpse fairytale landscapes, the imposing 12th century Dolwyddelan Castle, ancient quarries and tracks, forests and the high peaks of Snowdonia before entering the heart of the mountain to emerge some minutes later in the imposing and historic industrial landscape of Blaenau Ffestiniog, the very centre of Wales' slate quarrying and mining industry.<br><br> Llandudno is the northern terminus of the Conwy Valley Line and is acclaimed to be one of the most beautiful seaside resorts in the United Kingdom. It is famous for its Victorian style and Edwardian elegance which is evident throughout the town. <br><br> There are two glorious beaches: the picturesque North beach, with its Victorian Pier, set between the Orme headlands; and the West Shore beach on the estuary of the River Conwy with its miles of golden sands.
