Serving the areas of Lisvane and Thornhill, this station was built in 1986 as a replacement for Cefn Onn Halt railway station. The name Lisvane is believed to mean ‘stone court’, and may be linked to the remnants of an old iron age earthworks in the area.

Thornhill consists of large modern homes, in contrast with Lisvane’s Victorian detached properties set in mature plots; however both are popular, affluent suburbs of Cardiff. Being located so close to Cardiff makes Lisvane and Thornhill an ideal base for exploring all of Cardiff's amazing attractions.
