    Things to Do in Barmouth, North Wales Take the Narrow-gauge Railway

    In 1895 a two mile railway was built by the owner of McDougall’s Flour to transport building materials to the construction site of Fairbourne Village. The line now offers a scenic trip between Fairbourne and Penrhyn Point and is easy to reach from cottages in Wales.

    Walk the Bridge

    The wooden-built Barmouth Bridge still carries local trains along its 900 yard (820m) span across the Mawddach estuary. For a nominal fee visitors can walk alongside the railway on a side path. It has particularly lovely views across the bay at sunset.

    Cafés and Pubs

    The town has ample cafés, pubs and restaurants to suit all dining requirements. The local fish and chips are delicious eaten out of paper on the harbour wall. The “Arousel Café” may be somewhat disturbing to families until you realize that it is actually named the “Carousel Café” but every time the letter C is replaced, locals remove it at night!
