Chugging into Caerphilly station, trains on the Rhymney Line of the Valley Lines network sweep around the south Wales town, and eagle-eyed passengers will spot the 13-century fortress. The station in the south of Caerphilly was originally built in 1871 but was rebuilt in 1913, and in 2009, to spruce it up a bit, holiday postcard-style murals appeared on the northbound side of the station. Trains leave every 15 minutes for Penarth via Cardiff Central, 20 minutes away, from platform 2, and from platform 3 north towards Bargoed and Ystrad Mynach. Although the town's bus station is outside the main entrance, visitors might like the ten-minute walk to Castle Court Shopping Centre, home to a host of high-street fashion chains, homeware and lifestyle stores, pubs and cafes. One of Caerphilly's more popular landmarks - a cast bronze statue of comedian Tommy Cooper, who was born in the town - is in The Twyn near the castle and more shops.
