The Heart of Wales Railway Line  

The Heart of Wales Railway Line is part of the main rail network....but with a difference. Connecting with main line trains at Swansea and Shrewsbury, this 120 mile line makes its way through some of the most unspoiled parts of Wales.

Simply to travel on the line is a relaxing and enjoyable experience. There are many wayside stations and halts where you can get off and explore the quiet valleys, forests and hills.

The many interesting towns and villages along the way will tempt you, along with spas, castles and other tourist attractions. Overnight accommodation is available at prices to suit all pockets.

Please use this site to find out information about the line and also the Heart of Wales Line Travellers' Association (HOWLTA). For the latest news and events please visit
