"Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch" train station in Wales

As you know, there are famous places in Wales such as magnificent old castles and the majestic Mt. Snowdon, but if you are interested in trains or railways, I found some nice information for you.

In North Wales, there is a small train station which has the best record of stations all over the world. The name of the station is so unique and will make you surprised. It is such a small station that if you want to go by train, you have to tell the conductor that you want to get off there.

The name of the station is...


It is 58 characters long and in Welsh this means "St. Maria church in the white hazel forest near the rapid whirlpool beside St. Tysilio of the red cave."

It is so long that local people call it "Llanfair PG Station."

This is the longest train station name in the world.
