Getting Here

London Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted Airports are well placed for access to Wales, with uninterrupted highway links. Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham and Bristol Airports are even nearer. Cardiff Airport has connecting services worldwide via Amsterdam, Dublin, Paris and Zurich.

There are five sea crossings from Ireland - Dublin and Dun Laoghaire to Holyhead, Rosslare to Fishguard and Pembroke Dock, and Cork to Swansea.

Rail connections are also excellent - just over two hours, capital to capital, from London to Cardiff. There are also rapid services to North Wales. If you are travelling to Wales by rail, you can pick up a hire car at some main towns and cities.

The map shows how easy it is to get to Wales. Excellent highway links make car journeys quick and straightforward. Wales is only a few hours away from London and England’s South-East, and less than an hour from Manchester.
