Cardiff Central railway station welcomes almost 12 million to the Welsh capital each year and connects the city to national destinations including Manchester, Bristol and London, along with regional towns like Bristol, Bath, Taunton, Southampton and Portsmouth.
And while it isn’t the only station in the area, with Cardiff Queen Street nearby seeing around 2.5 million annual visitors, it’s certainly the biggest. In fact, Cardiff Central Railway Station is the eleventh busiest UK station outside of London and the 29th overall busiest in Britain.
Of course, one of the main reasons it is so popular, is the proximity of the station to the iconic Principality Stadium (or Millennium Stadium as it was once known) which hosts regular high profile football matches, rugby games and other events.
If you’re looking for an activity that doesn’t involve sport, the Motorpoint Arena and St David’s Hall offer concerts across the whole year, or for fans of sci-fi there’s the fabulous Doctor Who Experience exhibition.
The area around the central bus station is in the process of being redeveloped. This means that some bus services may depart and arrive at a stop that is not within the Central Bus Station. Click on the link to see a list of routes and timetables
