Originally built in 1869, Pwllheli station serves the small coastal town of Pwllheli on the Llyn Peninsula in Gwynedd, Wales. The station was relocated in 1909 and extended further west, bringing it closer to the town centre. The new station had two platforms and a small loading dock, and further regeneration in the 1980s saw the replacement of the station canopy, as well as the construction of a large supermarket on the station site.
Pwllheli, the main town in the Llyn Peninsula, is home to a large welsh speaking community and boasts a wide range of shops, pubs and cafes. The weekly market, held every Wednesday at the railhead in the town, is a popular gathering point for the population of the whole peninsula. The station has a single track which runs a bi-hourly stopping service to Birmingham International, calling at 34 other stations on route, including Porthmadog, Talybont, Aberdovey and Shrewsbury.
