Llandanwg railway station is in the village of Llandanwg in Gwynedd, Wales. It is an unstaffed halt on the Cambrian Coast Railway with direct passenger services to Harlech, Porthmadog and Pwllheli to the north and west, and Barmouth, Machynlleth, Shrewsbury and Birmingham to the south and east.

The railway line was opened by the Cambrian Railways in 1867, but the station did not open until 1929, after the Cambrian Railways had been incorporated into the Great Western Railway.[1]

Services[edit]

Trains run approximately every two hours in both directions, but with significantly fewer trains on Sundays. All trains run as far as Pwllheli and Machynlleth, with some running beyond Machynlleth to Shrewsbury and Birmingham, whilst others provide onward connections there. Most trains call at Llandanwg only on request.[2]
