Blaenavon's Heritage Railway is set in the heart of a World Heritage Site on the edge of the Brecon Beacons in South Wales. There is ample free car and coach parking at Furnace Sidings, by Garn Lakes, our main Station. From here our trains head north to the Whistle Inn, south to Blaenavon High Level Station (which is only a short walk from Blaenavon town centre) as well as to Big Pit Halt, which is adjacent to the Big Pit Mining Museum.

Whether you're looking for a family day out or you are a devoted railway enthusiast, we have something for you. With free car parking at Furnace sidings, why not combine a visit to Big Pit with a ride on the train, using our new halt at Big Pit.

Enjoy a snack in the tea room at Furnace Sidings or shop in Eric's Emporium, an outpost of The Railway Shop in Blaenavon which stocks a selection of railway models, gifts and souvenirs. Many trains also have a buffet car offering light refreshments.
