"To ensure your rail holiday expectations are met Ffestiniog Travel actively encourages direct and regular contact with our team of expert consultants prior to departure. For this reason we do not operate an online booking system and prefer a more personal approach. Travellers who book with Ffestiniog Travel are assigned the same FT travel consultant who will deal with all their enquiries and arrangements regarding their choice of rail holiday"

Celebrate 150 Years of Steam
Holidays by rail today are a far cry from when working steam locos first took to the narrow gauge tracks of our sister company Ffestiniog Railway 150 years ago, but Ffestiniog Travel are delighted to celebrate this special year by offering a number of short rail holidays that honour the power of steam and railways. The Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways are marking the year with a number of special events and we have produced some rail mini-breaks to help you be part of them. See our 150 Years of Steam Specials and the Narrow Gauge Steam Odyssey pages for more information. Please don't hesitate to contact us direct to find out how you can share in the celebrations.
Our friendly team of expert travel consultants are available to deal with any queries Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm or by telephone only on Saturdays between 9am and 1pm.
