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 Caerphilly train station 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.
