From the East (England):

You want to come into Wales on the M48, over the older of the two Severn bridges. There is a toll for crossing the bridge, it's currently £5.10 for cars but you only have to pay on the way in, leaving Wales is free (!). If you want to avoid the toll, then come into Wales on the M50 and take the A449 from Monmouth down to J24 of the M4, then follow the instructions below for reaching the site from the West.

This map shows the village of Caerwent and the surrounding area.

As soon as you come off the bridge, take Junction 2 and turn right onto the A466 to Chepstow.

When you reach another roundabout turn left towards Caerwent on the A48. Stay on the A48. After about 3 or 4 miles (approx) you'll pass under a rail bridge at the bottom of a hill and should see a red-on-white MoD sign on the left side of the road for RAF Caerwent East Gate, turn right and then take the first left and drive up to the East Gate where DV marshals will be waiting to direct you.

Please observe the speed limits displayed on the signs.

We shuttle people from the gates to the site at 9:00am – please do not miss this ‘window’ as otherwise you may not get in – this is a fully operational site!

If you are late, lost or not able to attend PLEASE PHONE US on 07921 336360.

 

From the West (Wales):

We are situated off junction 24 of the M4, the junction with the A449 from Monmouth and the A48.

Once you are off the motorway (assuming you were on it in the first place!), take the 2nd roundabout exit so that you are on the A48, heading towards Llanbeder and Langstone (there's a MacDonalds just off this island if breakfast is a consideration). The road itself is called Chepstow Road, quite appropriately as that's where it goes.

Travel along the A48 heading north west and looking for signs to Caerwent. It will be around 8 miles. Watch out for the speed camera!

Ignore the turnoff marked Caerwent itself, and look for the red on white RAF Caerwent West gate sign. Drive on, and ignore the sign for the Main Gate as well – you want the sign for RAF Caerwent East Gate. The turning is on the left just after the short stretch of dual carriageway. It's an easy one to miss, so don't come out of the dual carriageway stretch too fast. There is a red on white MoD sign pointing to it, directly opposite the turning.

Take that left, and then take the first left and drive up to the East Gate where DV marshals will be waiting to direct you.

Please observe the speed limits displayed on the signs.
