From Our Editors

Pontypool and Blaenavon Railway is a World Heritage Site at the edge of the Brecon Beacons. The three-mile stretch of track was constructed in the 19th century and was initially used to transport coal from the surrounding mines. Journeys start at Furnace Sidings and take passengers over 3 miles of line to three other stations on a nostalgic, steam-powered journey through the panoramas of rural Torfaen. Visitors can also make use of the tea room, gift shop and free parking at Furnace Sidings, and many trains also offer a buffet car serving light refreshments.

We had a lovely day at the Blaenavon Heritage Railway gala weekend. We weren't 100% sure if we would be able to use our voucher but there was just a small surcharge of £2 for both of us. We spent the afternoon relaxing on two of the lovely steam trains and thoroughly enjoyed seeing everyone in their uniforms & talking about the trains and answering any questions. Great atmosphere.

It's a nice little railway journey, with the emphasis on little. 4 times at the same station (incl start and finish) and little to see or do. No commentary or information on board either. Nice experience but not worth even the Groupon rate let alone the full price. The Blaenavon Mountain railway is a lot better value and journey length

It's very over priced for what you get we paid less by booking with groupon but it was a waste of money my 6 year old grandson who loves everything about trains said it was awful you just go up and down a short art of the track all the staff were lovely
