Gwili Steam Railway

Take a step back in time on the Gwili Steam Railway, a preserved heritage line that takes its passengers on a relaxed round trip through the stunning landscapes of South Wales. Harking back to a slower pace of life, the line runs alongside the pretty River Gwili, past rocky outcrops, and by the cascading waters of Gwili Falls - an area rich in wildlife.

The round trip takes passengers between Abergwili Junction and Danycoed Halt, on a scenic 8-mile journey that takes around an hour. The original line here, the Carmarthen to Aberystwyth line, opened in 1860. After it was closed, the line was taken over by the Gwili Railway Preservation Company with the aim of preserving the 8-mile stretch used today. The journey is just as scenic as in the 1800s, taking passengers on a nostalgic journey by the river, past open fields and woodland - landscapes virtually unchanged in the last century.

“It was a very good holiday with we both enjoyed very much. Your Tour Manager, Jon Williams, was excellent: extremely informative, helpful and knowledgeable. St. Fagan's Castle and Folk Museum was an excellent substitute for Caerphilly Castle with much more to offer. The two train journeys were excellent especially the Gwilly. St. David's would have been good to see again but, on relection, we think it would have been too far. The substitute of Laugharne was an excellent choice and should, we think, be a permanent item in the schedule but with longer time allowed. Thanks for "delivering the goods" - once again!
