Bring your family to the stunning valleys of Rheidol at The Vale of Rheidol Railway. Hop aboard a train you’re great grandparents may have visited.

Running since 1902, this railway has been running for over a hundred years and has shown generation after generation the beauty of the Rheidol valleys. See parts of the valley only accessible by train, and go on a day out that parents, kids and grandparents will love.

Keep an eye out for Buzzards and Red Kites on your travels, as these birds of prey can regularly be seen soaring past the hills and over the train. This is an 11 ¾ mile journey that will take you from Aberystwyth to the famous Devil’s Bridge Falls. See the sights of the valley with your family and enjoy a relaxing and breathtaking day out with the kids.
