Snowdon Mountain Railway is preparing to mark the 10th anniversary since the opening of its summit building.

Hafod Eryri, which loosely translates as ‘high summer dwelling on Snowdon’, opened in June 2009 replacing the ageing building that had stood there since 1935.

At 3,507ft above sea level it is Wales’ highest inhabited building, and also serves as the terminus for the railway with around half-a-million visitors a year.

There’s always a sense of real excitement as we reopen the summit building for the summer season on Snowdon, but this 10th anniversary year feels even more special.

It’s testament to the work of the team who built Hafod Eryri that it still looks as good and stands as proud as it did when it opened a decade ago.

We are planning to mark the anniversary in style and we’ll reveal more details about this soon.
