Map & Directions

Road Directions

Just off the A4086 Caernarfon - Capel Curig road. The approach road to the railway is clearly signposted off the main road at the south end of Llanberis, almost opposite the Snowdon Railway station.

Motorists are advised to drive down to Padarn Country Park and board the train at our main station, Gilfach Ddu, as there is much more room to park here than in the village, which may be congested.
