Betws-y-coed lies in the Snowdonia National Park, in a valley where the River Conwy is joined by the River Lledr. It was a major coaching centre betwee Corwen and Capel Curig on the Irish Mail route from London to Holyhead. Later construction of the Betws-y-Coed railway station in 1868 heralded the arrival of the railway line from Llandudno Junction railway station.
Betws-y-Coed is a very popular place to visit with children as there are walking trails along the waterside and through the trees where they can go paddling. At the station there is a small steam train for families to take a short and interesting ride or a small box train which the children can drive themselves. There is also a gift shop, cafe and miniature railway museum. Outside the station there are a variety of shops and cafes and outdoor seating when the weather is dry, a park for the children to run around and play and plenty of parking spaces.
