"Getting to Tintern" Tintern Abbey Transportation Tip by aaaarrgh
Tintern Abbey Transportation: 2 reviews and 2 photos
Tintern is a few miles north of Chepstow, following the A466 road which passes Chepstow Racecourse and then follows the River Wye quite closely, heading for Monmouth. Chepstow is easy to reach by car, being only a couple of miles from the M4 motorway.
By public transport, the nearest railway station is Chepstow. Tintern is served by the Number 69 bus (currently operated by Town & Country Bus) which rattles and screeches its way from Chepstow Bus Station, past Chepstow Racecourse, Tintern and eventually to Monmouth. It leaves only once every two hours, so it helps if you can coordinate your train journey with the bus timetable (the bus station is a brisk 10 minute walk from the train station). A return bus ticket from Chepstow to Tintern is £4 for an adult (2011). There is a bus stop on the main A466 road in front of Tintern Abbey and then every 300m or so through Tintern village.
