Roads To Wales
Wales is easily accessible from London's Heathrow and Gatwick airports but Cardiff, the capital city, has its own airport. Travellers from Europe may well find this more convenient.
If you are coming via London Heathrow or Gatwick, chances are that you have come a long way. If you had a choice, you would have chosen Heathrow since this is nearer to Wales.
If you are heading for North Wales from London you could take the tube, a bus or a taxi to London Euston railway station (tube will be cheapest). Trains leave for Holyhead hourly.There is normally a change at Crewe and the train gets to Prestatyn in 3 hours. Holyhead takes just over 4 hours. The nearest airport for North Wales is at Manchester; this is just a 90 minute drive from Holyhead.
From both Heathrow and Gatwick there is a regular bus service to South Wales (via Newport and Cardiff). Heathrow passengers can also take a bus to Reading British Rail Station and pick up a train for South Wales. Gatwick passengers can take the Gatwick Express train into London Victoria rail station. An underground (tube) journey takes the traveller to Paddington rail station from where trains run to Wales every 40 minutes in peak time.
