Look, here’s the train approaching Barmouth, on the coast of Wales. The line runs through some wonderful scenery and has made us think about a rail trip next time. Lots of small steam railways running inland from this line, too, though mostly closed until Easter. Up the road a little way is Harlech with its very imposing and well worth visiting castle and then there’s the Lleyn peninsula to explore. On the way, there’s the curious Portmeirion and Clough Williams-Ellis’s equally interesting Brondanw garden – which alone made a trip to this area well worth it.
