Trains to Carmarthen

The South Wales Railway reached Carmarthenshire in the 1840s, although the current station opened in 1902. Trains to Carmarthen travel on the West Wales Line, and include services to Swansea, Cardiff, Manchester, Holyhead and Pembroke. During the summer months, there is also a daily service to London Paddington. Travellers arrive in Carmarthen to the south of the town centre, on the opposite bank of the River Towy. The walk over the footbridge from the station to the shopping streets around Guildhall Square takes about eight minutes. Carmarthen is one of the oldest towns in Wales, and in Roman times, it was known as Moridunum. The Roman fort was established in AD 75, and you can still sneak in a visit to the site of the Roman Amphitheatre, which was excavated in 1968 and is one of only seven surviving across Great Britain. The Amphitheatre is a fifteen-minute walk from the station or the town centre.

Station details & facilities

Although Carmarthen has two platforms, the vast majority of services leave from platform 1 where the main station facilities - ticket office, cafe, toilets, waiting room - are located. Platform 2 can be reached via a barrow crossing but is only used when two trains are calling at the station at the same time. There is a taxi rank and bus stop outside the main station building, where you will also find the car park with 85 spaces.
