How to get to Wales by road

Getting to Wales by car is easy from wherever in the UK. From the North of England or Scotland, take the M6 or M56 on your way South for the scenic route through North Wales.

From the Southwest, take the M4 to Hendy, then the A48 to travel further into Wales. From the Southeast and London, take the M4 through the North Wessex Downs on your way west.

A £6.50 toll applies when travelling into Wales across the Severn Bridges.

Coaches run frequently from around the country, with many leaving from London Victoria each day to Cardiff, Aberystwyth and more.

To plan your journey we recommend using the AA Route Planner.
