An online guide to motorway services

If this is your first visit, then welcome to the site!

Love them or hate them, we've all used a motorway service area before. Motorway Services Online attempts to catalogue useful information for people that use them and serious research into their background, powered by sporadic dosages of enthusiasm for social-history and the retail industry. And motorways.
