Details

Hafod Eryri will open as soon as access by train is possible in the spring, but the date is dependent on winter weather on the mountain, and it will usually close at the end of October. As both the opening and closing dates are weather dependent we advise visitors to check the Snowdon Mountain Railway website for up to date details.

During the operating season the building will aim to open at 10:00 a.m. If bad weather, mechanical or other problems prevent the trains from running then the Summit building may not be able to open.

Access to the building is closed 20 minutes prior to the last passenger train leaving. There are no facilities at the Summit once the building has closed.
If weather conditions deteriorate suddenly Hafod Eryri may need to close at very short notice.
It is possible to check with Snowdon Mountain Railway for the anticipated daily opening times of Hafod Eryri.

Hafod Eryri is operated by Snowdon Mountain Railway as a commercial outlet and only food and drink which has been purchased in the centre may be consumed in the building.

There are a limited number of single tickets available to travel down the mountain but these are only sold on a standby basis. There is no guarantee of a ticket so please be aware that anyone who walks up Snowdon must also be prepared for the walk back down.

Only registered service dogs are permitted in Hafod Eryri and on the train. Staff may ask for proof of registration. There are tethering rings on the exterior of the building where dogs may be left at the owner’s discretion.
