Holidays in Porthmadog
The area and getting around
Considered Porthmadog's most beloved landmark, The Cob is an embankment that was built in 1810 by William Madocks. The mile-long embankment led to the creation of a new natural harbour for small boats, and Porthmadog came into being as a result. This precious landmark crosses the Glaslyn Estuary and runs from the railway station to the engine sheds at the southern end. By that time, the innovative track became the main route for the Ffestiniog slate to reach the town. Today tourists take a walk along the embankment to appreciate the beautiful views of the Snowden mountain range to the east and the coast to the west.The main attraction: Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways
Located at Harbour railway Station at the western end of Cob, Ffestiniog Railway has been recognized by the Guinness Book of Records as the oldest railway company in the world. The company owns the world's oldest steam engine, named Prince. More than 150 years after its construction, you can take a trip on this historic train into the mountains. From Porthmadog it is a 13 and a half mile journey to the town of Blaenau Ffestiniog. You'll pass through the forests of Snowdonia National Park, quiet meadows and past lakes clinging to a mountainside. The railway journey is the number one attraction in the city. You can also travel along the southern end of the Welsh Highland Railway which passes through the UK's most beautiful National Trust site, the Aberglaslyn Pass.
