How to get to Cardiff and Newport
Trains from London to Cardiff and Newport leave from Paddington Station. There is a tube station at this station and the Bakerloo line, Circle line, District line and the Hammersmith and City line all stop here.
Train ticket prices vary greatly depending on what time of the day you travel (ranging from £67 to £203 for a return ticket to Newport and £72 to £213 to Cardiff). You can buy the tickets at Paddington Station or you can get the tickets cheaper if you buy in advance from a website such as www.thetrainline.com or www.nationalrail.co.uk.
Trains leave regularly for Newport and Cardiff from Paddington Station, the journey takes around two hours.
A much cheaper option is to book a coach from London to Cardiff or Newport. You must book your seat in advance on the National Express website. Prices start from £12 for a return trip.
Coaches leave for both cities throughout the day from Victoria Station and take around two hours 45 minutes (to Newport) and three and a half hours (to Cardiff).
There are plans locally to organise a peace camp with basic facilities but no details will be available until much nearer the time. If you prefer to arrange your own accommodation in advance, please find some possibilities listed below. We strongly advise you to arrange a place to stay before arriving in Wales.
