Overview

Wales is an amazing mix of old castles, sandy beaches, green mountains, and lots of sheep!

Wales has a well-developed railway network. The main railway company is Arriva. There are trains operating between and Wales as well. Major Welsh cities served by trains are Cardiff and Swansea. The railway network is denser in the southern region of Wales.

Cityscape

You must visit Cardiff, Wales’ capital, with its castle, its museum and its bay. Then take the train to Bangor. It’s a little city but as there are lots of students it’s a lively place. Jump on a First Great Western train to reach Swansea where you will enjoy the lovely quay lined with beautiful boats, and since you’re here, go and see the Glynn Vivian Gallery.

Landscape

Travelling by train will enable you to discover that Wales has countless castles. Trekking in one of the three National Parks, you may enjoy the view made up with lakes, rivers, and coastline. If you are looking for beaches, go to Llanduno or see the West Shore’s sandy dunes.

Take Home

You should get a train to Wrexham; it is a lovely and charming place to go shopping, where you will like to walk around the market and the arcades. Or you can take the train to Pwllheli. Nearby the train station you will find the street shops and markets.

Eat & Drink

Cardiff provides great eateries where you can find traditional dishes as well as New World sophistication. Fish and ships is easy to find, but since you are in Wales, try lamb stew or welsh faggots. Taste the chwisgi, the local whisky.

New Perspective

Climb to the summit of Snowdon (1,085 metres high), and visit the Hafod Eryri centre, the thrills and spills of the views will be memorable.

    2nd class adequate  |
    "The seat was a little crammed when someone was sitting next to me but as the ride continued the train thinned out and I could spread out and relax more. You get what you pay for and 2nd class was okay for 3 hours. Good price. "

    Great train to Edinburgh |
    "The Virgin train trip from London Kings X to Edinburgh was smooth and comfortable. In first class, seats were good, as was the food service, offering both a late breakfast and lunch. This is a hassle free commute between major cities, giving us time to catch up on our reading, emails or snoozes. "

    "We paid for first class and did not get the seating and treatment as indicated on the paperwork that came with the tickets. No Wi fi and the power points were not USB, in future it would be appropriate to have USB instead of power points. Apart from this, it was a comfortable trip. "

    Kings Cross - Edinburgh |
    "Happy with the service I received. Train was on time. "

  • Easy peasy |
    "Great trip...all efficient...but did have a bit of a hold up as we had to print our tickets at the station rather than receiving them any other way..and this process wasn't terribly obvious. "

    Great trip-but packed train |
    "We had pre booked two seats from London to Edinburgh, all good and seats comfy, enough room so all good. Trip still great until a train was delayed (or broken down) at York so our fairly full train had to take on extra people. We stood to give two old people (in their 80's) our seats, a large number of other people had to stand as well. At one stage we were asked (the standing people) to move (squash) into the next carriage so the food and beverage trolley could move to the next carriage (or the train would have to stop we were told). So while it was a good trip we had to stand for over an hour which was tedious. "

    Cheltenham Spa to Paddington |
    "Great Western Line: Train had reserved seating and kept to timetable. For overseas visitors it is a great pity that bookings for British trains cannot be made earlier than 60 days before travel. "

    Smooth and Expensive |
    "The booked travel worked seamlessly. Collecting the tickets was easy. reserved seats a necessity due to full train. UK train travel is expensive by Aust standards, but we saved by booking early. "
