Services run throughout the summer from Llanberis Station to the Summit Station, where visitors can walk a short distance to the highest point in Wales and England, 1,085m above sea level.

The railway, which welcomes over 130,000 visitors a year, is part of Heritage Great Britain plc, a group which owns and manages tourist destinations like Land’s End, John O’Groats and The Needles on The Isle of Wight.
