Well, that was the most painful crossing I've ever had on the old bridge. Arrive at the tag lane, find it's not recognising my tag. Ok, shouldn't be an issue, will be something they deal with on a daily basis. Car right up my rear,...More

Walked from the Welsh side to the English side and back. Fantastic views both up and down the river. A little unnerving for the unwary is the way that the bridge bounces due to the traffic on the motorway. Probably not a good walk if...More

One of the great Bridges of Britain. Linking England with Wales. Takes what seems like a good five minutes just to cross the bridge, its so big! And good news, they've reduced the toll money to cross it the bridge too, and about time.

We crossed over from Chepstow to England and got nice views up and down the Severn River and of Chepstow and the old bridge. The road surface could do with being re surfaced.

Severn View Motorway Services on the England side of the old Severn Bridge are the most dismal, dingy, disappointing Services I have ever visited. Not only are they shabby, sad and desolate, they also a must be having a laugh with their prices. Two Fruit...More

We made a huge diversion on our way down to Cornwall from the Normal route so I could cross this bridge. We crossed from the Welsh side and was pleasantly surprised to see it was a free crossing, with no toll. Well sign posted and...More
