Danescourt railway station is a railway station serving the Danescourt suburb of Cardiff, Wales.

The station is the first stop after Radyr on the Cardiff City Line 3 miles (5 km) north of Cardiff Central. The City Line was freight only until 1987, when British Rail introduced an hourly passenger service between Cardiff Central and Radyr.

Both of the station's two platforms are accessible for disabled passengers via ramps. The Cardiff Central-bound platform is accessible via a bridge, whilst the Radyr-bound platform is accessible via a residential road (Beale Close) off the main road (Danescourt Way). A footbridge links the two platforms.

Some non-stop passenger trains pass through in both directions.
