This is a list of railway stations in Cardiff, the capital of Wales. It only includes passenger heavy rail stations with timetabled services.

All 20 stations in Cardiff are owned by Network Rail and managed by Arriva Trains Wales which also operates all train services at these stations, with the exception of Cardiff Central which is also served by CrossCountry and Great Western Railway.

The stations form part of Cardiff's commuter rail network, colloquially known as Valley Lines, with Cardiff Queen Street and Cardiff Central being the main hubs of the city. Cardiff Central is also one of the United Kingdom's major railway stations, providing connections to Newport, Bristol, Bath, London, Southampton, Portsmouth, Gloucester, Cheltenham, Birmingham and Nottingham. Cardiff Central continues to serve as major interchange on the British rail network, with 1,042,297 changes at the station in 08/09. Its passenger usage also increased by around 1.5 million to 11.3 million.[1]
