Barry Docks Railway Station is one of three railway stations serving the town of Barry, South Wales.

More centrally located than Barry station, it is located on the Vale of Glamorgan Line from 7 14 miles (11.7 km) south of Cardiff Central towards Bridgend (via Barry and Rhoose) and Barry Island.

It was built after the Barry Railway Company was incorporated by Act of Parliament on 14 August 1884, for the construction of a dock at Barry Island. The company also ran Paddle Steamers from the nearby pier across the Bristol Channel, but eventually sold out to the Bristol company of P and A Campbell.

Rail passenger services are operated by Arriva Trains Wales as part of the Valley Lines network.
