Trains depart from London Paddington to Cardiff Central once an hour throughout the day on average. Direct services are provided by First Great Western, with journey times averaging approximately two and a half hours.
First class passengers on First Great Western have access to complimentary food and beverages, a free newspaper on weekdays, power points and reclining leather seats for maximum comfort throughout the trip. Selected trains also boast new entertainment carriages with at-seat televisions to keep even the most boisterous children content and happy. Conversely, a quiet carriage is a welcome refuge from the noise and bustle so often associated with railway travel.*Information correct at time of writing (March 2011). May be subject to change
