Conwy Valley Railway Shop and Museum
Located in the beautiful village of Betws-y-Coed adjacent to the British Rail station Conwy Valley Railway Museum is a must for all that enjoy trains. A miniature railway takes you on a 8 minute trip around the beautifully landscaped grounds. If you are lucky you may see wild rabbits grazing by the pond. Trains run most days. In the season and every weekend there will be a steam engine pulling the train - at other times a diesel engine will be in service. For a different view of the site take the fifteen inch gauge electric tramcar – the only one in Wales. As this is a larger vehicle it is suitable for those with mobility problems.

Ysbyty Estate National Trust, Betws-y-Coed LL24, UK
The vast Ysbyty Estate lies just south of the picturesque village of Betws y Coed and is the largest single estate cared for by the National Trust. The estate covers over 8,000 hectares of high, wild open moorland, dramatic river valleys and 51 hill farms. It has very diverse landscape and habitats.
The Migneint which is the large stretch of moorland and blanket bog on the south of the estate is all designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) on account of its plant communities and its bird life. The estate covers the main parts of three river valleys: the upper Conwy, the Eidda and parts of the Machno.
The Eidda valley or as its known locally Cwm Eidda is hidden away between the upper Conwy and the Machno and is very picturesque. It is only accessible by single track road or, best of all, by a network of public footpaths.
