A nice little pass time

While staying in Llanberis we decided to give the Lake railway a try. It was a pretty little ride that used up about an hour.

We took our 2 year old and 4 month old and they both absolutely loved it. The views were beautiful and the ride wasn't too long so our 2 year old didn't get bored. We also enjoyed the stop and had time to walk over to the lake.

This was a birthday present for my husband off our daughter . It was a lovely day and the weather was perfect . Scenery was all really nice and not rushed at all , staff were very friendly except for the lady in the shop at the entrance who wasn't very forthcoming but didn't spoil our experience at all .
