Porthmadog station serves the community of the same name in the county of Gwynedd in North Wales. 

The station opened on 5 August 1877 as part of the Festiniog Railway and is now a Grade II listed building. Designed by the Festiniog Railway's chief engineer, Charles Hughes, it’s a fine example of the vernacular style, with a slate roof, stone walls and possessing two floors. Built in the form of a letter T, the main entrance is on the platform side, and there is a pretty gable end with a window on the other side. The building was originally used as offices, stores, and waiting rooms.

Part of the station building is now a railway museum, whilst the rest is a ticket office and waiting room. There is no car park at the station, but short-term parking is available on nearby streets. The nearest bus stop is in Porthmadog town centre.
