You are here
Adventure is all very well in its place. Clambering up a rock face or hurtling down a zip wire definitely have their attractions. But sometimes you just want to take it easy.
It doesn’t get more relaxing than a trip on a steam railway. Although we must admit the steep climb up Golfa Bank on the Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway can be a bit hair-raising if you’re not used to it. The rhythmic huffing and puffing as you wind your way through the wildlife-rich Banwy Valley will soon restore your equilibrium. The dreamy clickety-clacks of the Corris Railway near Machynlleth, the first narrow gauge line in Mid Wales, will have much the same effect.
And the Brecon Mountain Railway, which starts three miles north of Merthyr Tydfil and ends in the remote splendour of the Brecon Beacons National Park, might well be the best way yet devised to recharge your batteries without actually leaving your seat. With the possible exception of a slow cruise down the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal. Just you, the kingfishers and a landscape drifting by at walking pace.
After a morning like that, you’ll be ready for anything. As long as it doesn’t involve too much physical effort. We recommend a visit to the National Cycle Collection in Llandrindod Wells or a tour of the Welsh Royal Crystal factory in Rhayader. Or perhaps a trip to the Cambrian Woollen Mill in Llanwrtyd Wells. But do watch out for Ieuan the animatronic shepherd. He could get you excited if you’re not careful.
Celebrate National Nest Box week and build your own box using Elan Valley timber. This is a family event, no unaccompanied children please. At Elan Valley Visitor Centre. 12-1pm, 2-3pm and 3-4pm still have availabilities. To book call 01597 810880
