Distance 0.42 miles (0.67 km)
Cardiff Central (Welsh: Caerdydd Canolog) is the largest railway station in Wales and the only station in Cardiff to be situated on the Great Western Main Line. It is an interchange station for local services on the main line, cross-country express trains, and suburban services on the Valley Lines rail network. The station is operated by Arriva Trains Wales, though the exterior signage (larger than the name of the station) still reads Great Western Railway, the name of the company who built it. It is located in Central Square and was formerly known as Cardiff General. The railway station forecourt — in the practical manner common in continental Europe but relatively rare in Great Britain — accommodates Cardiff's central bus station.
