Radyr railway station lies a few miles north west of central Cardiff along the River Taff and the Merthyr Line. It was opened in the mid-19th century by the then Taff Vale Railway originally as Penarth Junction with four lines running passengers and goods between Llandaff and Cardiff. After the decline of coal production, so did Radyr’s importance. Major redevelopments in the late ‘80s and ‘90s replaced the freighter lines with a third platform creating a useful commuter line into the city. Today, the station and the trains that pass through are run and managed by Arriva Trains Wales. Facilities include a footbridge which links the three platforms together, digital timetable displays and waiting shelters as well as a large car park. There are up to eight trains an hour to Cardiff Central in 16 minutes and five an hour to Pontypridd in 15 minutes.
If you’re looking to escape the bustle of the capital, you’ve come to the right place. Just a stone’s throw from Radyr railway station, you’ll find the beautiful Long Wood Nature Reserve, the Forest Farm Country Park and Radyr Golf Club where you can practise your swing along the rolling fairways.
