Holyhead Station

Holyhead is the largest town on the Welsh island of Anglesey, and Holyhead station serves the 13,000 residents as well as the many visitors who come to this picturesque part of the country for a day trip or a longer visit to enjoy the Welsh countryside.

The first station in Holyhead was built in 1848, but the original building was opened nearly 20 years later, in 1866, and it still retains its original roof. Holyhead is the terminus of the North Wales Coast Line, which runs from Crewe on the West Coast Main Line. There are numerous services from Holyhead, including frequent trains to Cardiff, Birmingham, London Euston and Crewe, and the station is served by both Avanti West Coast and Transport for Wales trains.

Holyhead Station connects to Holyhead ferry terminal, the main terminal for sea crossings for Wales and northern England to Ireland, making it easy if you want to travel further afield to Dublin on a rail and sail ticket.

It’s easy to get to and from the station, as there’s a taxi rank outside as well as bus stops that will take you into Holyhead and Anglesey. You can also travel to the station on foot or bike over the Celtic Gateway, a distinctive stainless steel bridge that connects the train station to the town centre.
