Port Talbot Parkway railway station sits on the South Wales main line and provides trains to a wide range of locations throughout Britain including Swansea, Cardiff Central, Newport, London Paddington and Manchester Piccadilly.

The station sees about half a million visitors pass through its doors on an annual basis and has been serving the local community for over 165 years. Opened in June 1850, it was originally named Port Talbot. In 1897 it was renamed as Port Talbot and Aberavon before finally settling on its title today some 87 years later.

Close to the River Afan and Baglan Beach, it’s a great place to go for a walk or spend some time when the sun is out. But if it’s culture you’re after, then you may be more interested to check out the music, comedy and theatre shows on at The Princess Royal.
