Attraction Information

See incredible sights from the top of a mountain without having to climb! Hop aboard the Brecon Mountain Railway and go sightseeing on a charming old steam train.

See the steam rise above your carriage as you rocket above one of Wales’ most cherished national parks. When you get to the top the train will stop for a short period so you can take in the breathtaking views. 

Kids will love getting the chance to ride on a real steam train that’s just like their toys. Both parents and kids will have a great day out rolling through the picturesque scenery and admiring the train’s quirks. If you’re lucky you may even spot some local wildlife, so make sure to bring a camera along to make a memento that you’ll always cherish!
