Severn View services
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.

Trivia and Design
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.
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.
