By Rail: Aberystwyth / 0 miles

From the coast at Aberystwyth, watch the scenery passing by your window. See the countryside change as you travel through wide open fields, ancient woodland and rugged mountain scenery as the line twists and turns, clinging to the hillside to reach Devil's Bridge – home of the famous Mynach Falls and Devil's Punchbowl.

Look out for birds of prey such as red kites and buzzards soaring high above the valley floor and listen to the sound of the narrow gauge steam engine working hard on the climb into the hills.

Opened in 1902, the railway is a masterpiece of engineering and has been delighting passengers young and old for generations. Although the line no longer carries lead ore from the mines it has been carrying holidaymakers to the beauty spot of Devil's Bridge for over a hundred years!

The 12 mile journey takes 1 hour in each direction. See timetables for departure times.
