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.

“An interesting holiday with lots to see, and the tour company and particularly Christine our tour manager did a wonderful job of making it go smoothly despite circumstances necessitating changes here and there. The hotel base was well located, excellent food and very helpful staff (our room could have been bigger and nowhere to unpack to, but others didn't have that problem). A programme of varied excursions (perhaps "with" steam a better title than "by" steam - but sufficient for us!), and the free day varied the pace for us. A well-rounded holiday with, we are sure, something for everybody. Thank you.
