Live departures and arrivals

If you’re travelling to Cardiff for pleasure, then you will be spoilt for choice on how to spend your day. Shoppers, sports fans, thrill seekers and culture vultures are all well catered for in the Welsh capital city. 

Cardiff is home to small boutiques selling one of a kind pieces, through to large stores selling the big name brands. Whatever it is that you are looking for, whether it is a new outfit for a night out, or a bespoke piece of handcrafted jewellery, Cardiff has it all. 

Sports lovers are well catered for in Cardiff. Go and support Cardiff City football team at the Cardiff City Stadium, cheer on the Cardiff Blues rugby union team at the world-famous Cardiff Arms Park or for something a little different, why not take in a Cardiff Devils ice hockey match at the Viola Arena.

However, if you prefer taking part in the action rather than just watching it, then a visit to Cardiff International White Water would be the perfect way to spend your day. Try stand up paddleboarding, white water rafting, kayaking or gorge walking, and you don’t even need to worry about being too tired for the drive home.

If you are looking for a more high-brow way to spend your day, then you can’t beat the iconic Millenium Centre in Cardiff Bay. Its iconic architecture is said to rival the Sydney Opera House, however it’s not just the building that impresses. From big-name West End shows and dance performances through to shows put on especially for the little ones, and family craft sessions, there really is something for all to enjoy. 

Whether you are travelling from Port Talbot to Cardiff for work or pleasure, catching the train is a great way to travel. Relax and arrive feeling refreshed and ready to start the day. Keep up-to-date with the latest travel news with our easily accessible app
