Snowdon, or in Welsh, Yr Wyddfa is the highest mountain in Wales and the highest point in the British Isles outside Scotland1.
The summit can be reached by a variety of well-known routes and it can also be reached via the Snowdon Mountain Railway, a steam hauled rack and pinion railway opened in 1896 which carries passengers 7.6 km from Llanberis to the summit station. The summit also houses a visitor centre called Hafod Eryri, built in 2006 to replace one built in the 1930s, which offers food and drink and also has toilets.
