Cardiff Queen Street Railway Station

Facts and Figures

Cardiff Queen Street railway station (Welsh: Caerdydd Heol y Frenhines) is a railway station serving the north and east of Central Cardiff, Wales. It is the second busiest railway station in Wales, being located near Queen Street. It is one of 20 stations in the city and two in the city centre, the other being Cardiff Central. The station is staffed at most times, with ticket purchase facilities, a newsagent in the forecourt and a café at platform level. In 2014, a reconstruction of the station was completed in order to reduce bottlenecks, with two extra platforms being put in (a previously existing platform, opposite platform 4, and a new bay platform next to platform 2 for the line to Cardiff Bay), taking the total number of platforms to 5.
