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 service area 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.

While it may not offer many facilities any more, the service area is still probably the best place to park for accessing the Severn Bridge, although the two-hour free parking limit can be an issue.

The current amenity building is probably the smallest at any signed motorway service area, but the large grounds make up for this. Its small size was one of the factors in Transport Focus calculating a 72% satisfaction score in Spring 2019, making it the worst site in England. Moto explained that they would be focusing improvements on it over the following year.

Moto have held planning permission to build an external Greggs store in front of the service area building since February 2020. Construction has been on hold while they decide whether to build this or to fit the Greggs inside the dining area instead.
