The line runs from Pant, near Merthyr Tydfil. Travel in one of our all-weather Observation Carriages, behind a vintage steam locomotive, into the Brecon Beacons National Park to see stunning views of the peaks of the Beacons across the Taf Fechan reservoir.
At Pontsticill you can alight from the train and visit our lakeside cafe, admire the view or go for a ramble alongside the reservoir. There is also a children’s play area here.
We’re located in the perfect spot in the old village of Penderyn, nestled in the foothills of the Brecon Beacons, and there we have created the best little distillery in Wales. And the smoothest wysgi on earth.
Penderyn Single Malt Welsh Whisky was first launched on St David’s Day, 1st March 2004, in the presence of HRH Prince Charles, to huge critical acclaim from both acknowledged whisky experts and "ordinary" consumers.
Summit Centre, formerly known as the Welsh International Climbing Centre, is located south of Merthyr Tydfil in the South Wales Valleys just 10 minutes from the A470 and under an hour from the centre of Cardiff. It is built on the site of the former Trelewis drift mine which closed in 1989. The Taff Bargoed Development Trust redeveloped the site and in 1997 it became an international indoor climbing centre.
