Severn Bridges now toll-free

Great news for visitors to Monmouthshire, as it's been announced that the tolls for the Severn Bridges will be scrapped on December 17th 2018. From Monday 17th you'll be able to visit us over both the Severn Bridge and the Prince of Wales Bridge without paying a penny.

This is welcome news for residents and visitors and ends 50 years of tolls since the first Severn Bridge opened.

So, no more entrance fees for Monmouthshire and an extra £5.60 in your pocket.
