Getting Here

Abergavenny is a small town with limited parking and so we encourage our visitors to use public transport or car share when possible. Find information on getting here below:

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 coach

There are regular long-distance services to Newport (contact your National Express travel agent) connecting with National Welsh and Red and White services.

By bus

The bus station is a five minute walk from the Festival entrance. Buses are mainly operated by Stagecoach Cymru. The main services are the X4 from Cardiff to Hereford which runs up to 17 times a day; the X20 Newport to Abergavenny and the X3/X33 Cardiff to Abergavenny via Cwmbran and Pontypool. The T4 Cardiff to Newtown TrawsCymru service connects with the 43/X43 connecting with the Brecon – Crickhowell – Abergavenny.

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. Please use the postcode NP7 5HD for the town centre.

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

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 their website.
