Travel to Wales by road

Getting to Wales by car is easy and fast wherever you are in the UK. If you’re travelling from the North of England or Scotland, the M6 or M56 will be one of the faster roads to take on your way South, taking a scenic route through North Wales on your way to your destination. From the South-West, the M4 will deliver you to Hendy, where you can then take the A48 if you’d like to travel further into Wales. From the South-East and London, heading along the M4 will take you on a beautiful drive through the North Wessex Downs on your way west. Keep in mind that a £6.50 toll applies when travelling into Wales across the Severn Bridges.

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