Crumlin (Welsh: Crymlyn) is a town in Caerphilly county borough, traditional county of Monmouthshire, south Wales, situated in the Ebbw valley, five miles west of Pontypool.

Crumlin is famous for its former railway viaduct. Opened in 1857 for the Taff Vale extension to the Newport, Abergavenny and Hereford Railway and closed in 1964, it remained the highest railway viaduct in Great Britain throughout its working life. Even while demolition work was in progress, scenes for the film Arabesque which starred Sophia Loren and Gregory Peck were being shot on it.

In the 1980s, Marcheast Ltd. made the Land Master, a four-wheel drive vehicle here.

Crumlin is also home to the popular snack, Pot Noodle. As of 2006 it appears in a series of TV adverts for the product. The main manufacturing plant, offices and distribution centre are situated here.
