Situated on the eastern edge of the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park, Abergavenny lies on the Welsh Marches Line from Newport to Hereford. Commonly referred to as ‘The Gateway to Wales’, it lies around 20 miles from the English-Welsh border, at the meeting point of two streams, the Gavenny and the Usk. As well as a charming town centre, visitors get a stunning backdrop: Abergavenny is surrounded by two mountains (the Blorenge and the Sugar Loaf) and five hills (the Skirrid, Skirrid Fach, Deri, Rholben and Llanwenart). Formerly named Abergavenny Monmouth Road, the station provides regular services in each direction between Manchester Piccadilly and Cardiff Central, leaving from platforms 1 and 2 respectively. Designed by Charles Liddell, famed architect and student of railway legend George Stephenson, the station buildings opened in 1854 and are perhaps most notable for their distinct Italianate architecture, which is still evident today.
