Situated halfway between the cities of Cardiff and Swansea, Bridgend lies on the junction of the South Wales Main Line and the Maesteg Line. The station is the fifth busiest in Wales, and runs regular passenger services to Swansea, Carmarthen and Fishguard in the west, and Cardiff, Reading and London Paddington to the east; there are also services to Manchester Piccadilly. Opened in 1850, the Grade II listed station boasts both building and pedestrian footbridge designed by world-renowned engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Situated on the River Ogmore, the town of Bridgend is noted for its outstanding natural beauty. The sprawling Bryngarw Country Park is just a short walk from the station, and is just perfect for a stroll through beautiful areas of woodland and around lakes or an award-winning oriental garden, stopping at picnic areas and cafes along the way.
