Trains to Holyhead

The largest settlement on the Welsh island of Anglesey was long established as a thriving port town by the time rail arrived in 1848. Trains ran right down to the waterside and, at one time, ships would berth right next to platform 1 so passengers could just nip into a carriage and continue their journey. Today, transfers are a little less anarchic, but the station still adjoins the Holyhead Ferry Port, still the UK's busiest sea link to Ireland. Head over the steel pedestrian bridge - named The Celtic Gateway - and you'll find ample opportunity for quality-food and cultural outings, with a theatre and a cinema all within walking distance of the station. The Maritime Museum is also worth a visit for exciting tales of the one-hundred-plus shipwrecks haunting the Anglesey coastline. Holyhead is set in the middle of some tremendous Welsh countryside, and excellent fishing spots, hiking routes, golf courses and sailing facilities are all just a bus ride away.

Station details & facilities

Holyhead station is accessible on both sides. The main ticket office you'll find in the Ferry Terminal, as are the toilets and other amenities, and from here you can access the main train station concourse with ramp access throughout. The other entrance is mostly used for vehicular access and is closest to the harbour. Lost property can be found on platform 2 and a bridge connects to platform 1. With one train a day, the Premier Service to Cardiff Central, uses platform 3.
