The heritage centre is located at the far end of the Llanuwchllyn station site in the carriage shed. Here you will find our main display with interpretation panels. Please see the main Bala Lake Railway website for timetables and other visitor details.

Llanuwchllyn station is just off the A494 at the South-Western end of the lake. Ample free car parking is available within the station site. Turning and parking facilities for pre-booked coach parties can also be provided.

Sat Nav users, please note the Google maps postcode does not lead to Llanuwchllyn station, please follow the B4403 through the village and look for the brown signs.

The centre is open on any day that the railway is operating trains. On non-operating days, access may be possible if staff or volunteers are on site, but we cannot guarantee this. Please see the Bala Lake Railway website for full details of operating days.

We do not charge for entry, but encourage all visitors to make a donation to our funds to allow our work to continue. We also highly recommend a ride on the railway, behind one of our historic quarry locomotives. It’s a beautiful 4.5 mile trip along the largest natural lake in Wales, in the shadow of the spectacular Aran, Arenig and Berwyn mountain ranges.
