Providing its local harbour town with trains to Manchester Piccadilly via Swansea, as well as Cardiff Central, Shrewsbury and Crewe, Pembrey and Burry Port railway station is one of a number of stops on the West Wales Line.
Pembrey and Burry Port railway station opened in October 1852, following the extension of the line from Swansea to Carmarthen. It became part of the Great Western Railway network in 1863, and today offers a daily service between Carmarthen and London Paddington from Monday to Saturday.
The local area of Burry Port is five miles from Llanelli and is known for being home to the harbour where Amelia Earhart landed when she became the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean. However, it’s also known for its love of music, which includes the famous Burry Port Opera.
