Getting to Wales by Public Transport

To travel around Wales you need to get to one of our main transport ‘hubs’, such as Cardiff, Chester or Shrewsbury. From there, you can easily connect to the network of trains and TrawsCymru services illustrated on the map.

Cardiff is served by frequent mainline trains from the London, the South East and the West Country (www.fgw.co.uk) and the Midlands (www.crosscountrytrains.co.uk).
