Neath is a riverside market town in Neath Port Talbort, Wales, and its station lies right in the town centre. Once called Neath General, it's the last of several which once served the area - Neath Canalside closed in 1963, and the remains of Neath Bridge Street can still be seen from the bridges to the north.
Today, Neath sees regular trains leaving platform 1 for Swansea and Carmarthen, with journey times of fifteen minutes and one hour respectively. From platform 2, trains head to the north and east, to Newport (South Wales), Manchester Piccadilly and London Paddington - trains to London take around three hours.
A short walk east of the station will bring you to the mix of high street chains and independent market stalls around the pedestrianised Queen Street and Green Street. The town is also popular with tourists, who come to see the ruins of Neath Abbey and the sprawling Gnoll Park.
