Glan Conwy railway station is on the east bank of the River Conwy on A470 road in the centre of the village of Llansanffraid Glan Conwy, Wales and is located on the Llandudno Junction to Blaenau Ffestiniog Conwy Valley Line. There are through services to Blaenau Ffestiniog.
Until around 1959, the station had its own Station Master. Afterwards, it was supervised by the Tal-y-Cafn station master. The staff comprised two porters working an early and late shift between them. A siding was provided which catered for coal and agricultural traffic. For many years, a camping coach was situated in the siding and used by holidaymakers, until the 1964 closure.
The station buildings are in private occupation. The station is operated as an unstaffed halt and is a request stop. Entrance is by a ramp from the end of the lower and original platform, where there is a small shelter.
Five southbound and six northbound trains call on request Mon-Sat (approximately every three hours), with three trains each way on Sundays between May and early September.
