Trains to Pontypridd

Trains through Pontypridd curve along the banks of the River Taff and deliver passengers into the heart of the town, with its long high street filled with well-known high street names alongside traditional shops, bars and pubs just a few minutes' walk north-west of the station. The sprawling Ynysangharad War Memorial Park and Cricket Ground, a five-minute stroll away, has a pitch-and-put, cafe and sports grounds as well as a revamped lido.
