The ever popular North Wales destination of Llandudno is again hosting their annual Victorian Extravaganza & Transport festival, and whilst not exactly Victorian, what better way to travel to the festival than on a steam train hauled by our own No: 5043 ‘Earl of Mount Edgcumbe’.
With over five hours at our destination, the Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza & Transport Festival offers a fun packed day for all the family. You are more than welcome to join in the daily parade, as long as you are appropriately attired!
The transport festival offers great opportunity to experience a huge selection of exhibits such as steam engines, early vehicles, traditional steam organs and much more. Whether you are an enthusiast or just have a casual interest, The Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza gives you the chance to step back in time to see, hear, smell and learn about the Victorian era.
