Visit Monmouthshire. Safely.

We are delighted to start welcoming visitors back to Monmouthshire when the local travel restriction is lifted on 6th July and self-contained visitor accommodation is allowed to reopen on 11th July. Look out for the new ‘We’re Good to Go’ industry kite mark for tourism and hospitality businesses which demonstrates that they have followed government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, ensuring processes are in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social/physical distancing. #visitsafely

Magor Marsh



Join us at our annual Gwent Wildlife Trust and Living Levels festival, Life on Marsh, to celebrate the amazing heritage of the Gwent Levels.

Magor Marsh will host music, dancing, singing, crafts and a large dose of laughter at this unique and enjoyable event. While away a summers afternoon amongst ancient meadow flowers and plants, marvel at the strange and fantastic creatures at home on the marsh, watch the bird life from our hide and have a go at craft making. Local brewers, bee keepers, skilled crafts people, societies, food producers and artisans will be waiting to welcome you.

Please note: Wear long sleeves and trousers because you will be exploring in the long grass. Some paths are not suitable for wheel chairs or push chairs. Refreshments will be available. Parking is on a field alongside the Marsh (weather allowing). Limited disabled parking available nearer the Centre on hard standing. Sorry strictly no dogs apart from Assistance Dogs.

Exit the M4 at Junction 23A and follow signs into Magor village on the B4245. On entering Magor continue through the village and then take a turning on the right signposted Redwick. Follow the road round to the right soon afterwards (also signed Redwick), and then follow the road past the ruins of the Priory on your left and over a narrow railway bridge. Turn left immediately after the railway bridge and follow this road for about 400 metres, and the reserve entrance is on the right. Park in the small car park beside the Trust’s Derek Upton Centre (grid ref: ST 428 866). This education centre is used by school groups during term time, but it is not open to the general public except for special events.

From Newport there is a local bus service (Number 61) which stops directly outside the reserve. Other bus services run to Magor village.
