Snowdon Mountain Railway

Recommended
The Snowdon Mountain Railway (1896) is the only rack railway of its type in Great Britain, taking you to the highest summit in Wales (1 085m). At the top, on a clear day, the beautiful panoramic view stretches to the island of Anglesey, the Isle of Man, and the Wicklow Mountains in Ireland.
