Pembroke Dock to Cardiff
Save

We are arriving at Pembroke Dock around midday 8th October and wish to be in Cardiff that evening.

Having trouble linking with train or coach.

Would love some advise please. Is hiring a car the only option?

Partner cannot walk long distances.

Take a look at www.nationalrail.co.uk - probably won't show as far ahead as October, but the timetable shouldn't differ. Think you'll probably need to change trains in Swansea, but that's a small station and the change will be all on the same level.

Trains are every two hours in the day and the journey takes just over three hours with a change in Swansea. a Probably a good deal quicker to fly.

Yes, most trains from Pembroke Dock only run as far as Swansea. Trains leave Pembroke Dock every two hours. The connection at Swansea is quick, you normally just cross from platform 3 to platform 2, which is just across the way. If you're arriving on a ferry, it's a fair walk to the station at Pembroke Dock, so you will need to get a taxi.

The transfer from ship to train is much easier at Fishguard.

Further info if travelling from Ireland:

Leaving Rosslare at 09.00 on the ferry to Fishguard will see an arrival by train in Cardiff Central station around five to four in the evening.

Two advantages of travelling the Rosslare-Fishguard route are that an all-in ticket (called a SailRail ticket) is available and works out cheaper than separate ferry and rail tickets. Plus the ferry terminal and rail station are in the same building at Fishguard Harbour so it's an easy transfer and there's a café in the terminal too.

An advance single from Rosslare to Cardiff is €41 and this can be bought over the phone (no fee for paying with a debit card) from Stena Line and collected at check-in on the day of travel. www.stenaline.ie has a dedicated section on SailRail.

The train leaves Fishguard Harbour and runs through to Cardiff Central (no change of train required).

Hope this helps & that you have an enjoyable trip.If any assistance is required at Rosslare or in boarding the ship this can be arranged too via Stena Line and the port authority.
