Overview

A proud and patriotic nation with its own living language, Wales is revelling in a resurgent sense of identity.

The main railway company in Wales is Arriva. Wales’s railway network is concentrated in the southern part of the country. Book tickets to visit main cities of Wales by train. Welsh cities including Cardiff, Swansea and Pembroke are all served by trains.

Cityscape

Bangor is one of the smallest cities in Britain, but with a high university population it remains one of the most vibrant and interesting in Wales. After visiting the pier and the castles, take an Arriva train south of Wales to the capital Cardiff for a look around, then on to Swansea via a First Great Western train. It’s a great place for checking out the art at the Glynn Vivian Gallery or the beautiful boats in the quay.

Landscape

With three national parks and countless castles, taking any train through Wales will unveil plenty of natural beauty. It’s a land of lakes, rivers and coastline, perfect for charter boats, fishing, walking and cycling. For some beach action try Llandudno’s award-winning North Shore and the quiet, sand dunes of the West Shore.

Take Home

Wrexham has been transformed into a shoppers paradise, yet still maintains its age-old charm with its arcades and markets. And a trip to Pwllheli train station will deliver you direct to the shopping action, with high street shops and open-air markets.

Eat & Drink

There’s a fantastic mix of defiant tradition and New-World sophistication in the capital Cardiff, the city has some great restaurants and is easy to reach by train through Wales from most UK stations. Check out the Millennium Stadium just behind the station.

New Perspective

It may be a hardy walk but the newly opened Hafod Eryri centre 3,560ft (1,085m) above sea level on Mount Snowdon is well worth it. Check out those views!

    Bristol to paddington direct |
    "This has historically been a painless journey and this one was no different. Continues to be a pretty punctual route, with just about enough seats to accommodate demand. Only concern would be if you were joining after Bristol, seat reservations weren't marked and it wasn't clear that the operator was honoring them at all. As the service starts in Bristol that was not an issue for me. "

    London to Edinbrugh Express |
    "The trip was fast and comfortable. The workers on the train were polite and nice. The only issue was the fact that there were only a couple of times that the cart came and it was kinda expensive. Overall it was a quick ride and a pleasant one. "

    great journey |
    "we are really enjoying traveling with Virgin train, the service is excellent but unfortunately on the way back to London we missed the train and we can not utilize the tickets for the next schedule and we have to buy new ones only for lower class with special rate - being helped by the ticketing officer "

  • Carlisle to Euston |
    "Good trip, train was on time and good value for money. Easy to book and print tickets at station. Used to Swiss trains that are more spacious than the British ones, but no complaints. "
