Getting here

BY CAR

The M4 from London, the South-East and Home Counties, the A40 via the Cotswolds, Gloucester and Monmouth; the M6, M5, M50 and A40 from the North and Midlands or through the Welsh Marches by way of the A449, A465 or A46.

Parking in town is limited and fills up very early and very fast. We strongly recommended using a carpark that is closest to your route to avoid the frustrating search for a space and possible delays through town.

BY RAIL

Abergavenny is served by frequent train services on the Cardiff to Manchester line. Connections from London Paddington, Bristol and the South West of England are available at Newport. Connections from Birmingham at Hereford.

The station is a five to ten minute, relatively level walk to the Festival and our Festival Crew will be on hand to direct you.


BY AIR 

Cardiff Airport is the gateway to Wales with many key destinations served by airlines including Aer Lingus, Flybe, KLM and Vueling. There are good public transport links from the Airport which will make it easy for you to get to the event. For more information please visit the website www.cardiff-airport.com.  


ACCESS

Event venues: Main market venues are fully accessible to wheelchair-users and mobility scooters.

Dogs: The Festival team love dogs (and other pets) but sadly dogs, with the exception of assistance dogs, are not allowed in any of the internal or external market venues. As they may spend much of the day in your car, we advise that you leave your dog at home. If you do wish to bring your dog, please park the car in a shady place, leave the window slightly open and ensure the dog has water. The welfare of the dog remains the responsibility of the owner.
