Welcome to Porthmadog


Porthmadog is also a bona fide paradise for railway buffs. There are 'little trains' all over Wales, a legacy of Victorian industry, but Porthmadog is triply blessed: it forms the southern terminus for two of Wales’ finest narrow-gauge train journeys and has a third steam-train line connected to a rail-heritage centre.

The shallow Traeth Bach estuary abounds in mullet, which in turn attract ospreys. Keep an eye out for these large birds of prey as you walk around the cliffs of Borth-y-Gest and Porthmeirion.
