  Cardiff central Station
by uglyscot

Cardiff Central is the main station in Cardiff. It has links to all parts of the country, and within Wales itself.
The service to London Paddington is good, and takes about 2-3 hours. On Sundays there is the longer route via Stroud and Gloucester.
No rail fares in UK are cheap, in fact the return fare to and from London- Cardiff is only £0.65 more than the single. It is always wiser to book a seat the day before to ensure getting a seat as frequently the train is full.
