Rhymney railway station lies in the heart of the little town of the same name just a few miles south of the Brecon Beacons and 23 miles north of Cardiff along the Rhymney Line. The station opened in the mid-19th century by the Rhymney Railway. The station went into decline in the ‘50s after the closure of the line that heads north and later reduced to a single platform. Today, the station and the trains that pass through are managed by Arriva Trains Wales. There is no ticket office or facilities for buying tickets, so they must either be bought online in advance or on board with the train conductor. The old stone ticket office still stands, through it is no longer used by the station. Facilities include a waiting shelter and digital passenger displays, but little else. There is a direct departure every hour to Penarth in 1 hour 19 minutes and Cardiff Central in 1 hour 5 minutes.

When you step off at the small station, there are several things to do nearby including a walk around the beautiful War Memorial Park, admire the Saint David's Church or swing by one of the cosy Welsh pubs to mingle with the friendly locals.
