Corwen Station

Corwen station is a new build station and is the western terminus of the Railway. Turn off the A5 in the square and enter the car park.  Before closure the line went to Bala Junction, Dolgellau and Barmouth.

The new station opened on the 1st June 2023 and has been built primarily by volunteers with contractors doing specialist jobs such as the canopy.

We have a Ticket Office and a small second hand shop.

The station has an island platform due to being built on an embankment where room was tight.

The station is on two levels. You approach through the Ticket Office on the car park level and proceed up the steps to the platform. A chairlift is available for standard wheelchairs or one person seated. Unfortunately, this will not take large motorised buggies, but we do have two standard wheelchairs that can be borrowed for the day.

On the platform we have a waiting room and toilets.

There is a large pay and display car park adjacent to the station and also a free car park a few minutes walk away.

In the town of Corwen there is the square with the statue of Owain Glyndwr on horseback. Sit in the square at Yum Yum’s cafe and enjoy some refreshments.

Visit the Corwen museum which is on the main A5 road (free admission). Opposite the museum is Corwen Manor which is the old Workhouse and is worth a visit. Also the Vintage Home Styles shop is interesting.

The church of St Mael and St Sulien is worth a visit. Look for the gravestone to a former railwayman.

If you like walking Pen Y Pigyn is nearby and you can also walk to the old fort of Caer Drewyn.

At the rear of the ticket office we have a nice picnic area that we call the Paddock. Sit and have your picnic and watch the trains come in.
