Rating: See the reviews

Possibly the windiest service area known to man, Severn View is a historic and now slightly neglected site alongside the original Severn Bridge. Despite its name, it is not actually immediately adjacent to the bridge, the river or the motorway junction, though it is connected to all three by public footpaths.

The services has changed a lot since it opened, when it was known as 'Aust'. Back then it could be found off M4 J21. Its history has all the details.

For all its flaws, the services are still probably the best place to park for accessing the Severn Bridge, but remember the two-hour free parking limit. It's also ideal if you need to get change to use the toll bridge.

The current amenity building is probably the smallest at any signed motorway service area, but the large grounds make up for this.
