Welcome to Magor

Magor is the first town you'll reach when entering Wales on the M4, close to Junction 23a. Perfect for a quick stop or longer stay, its village square (filled with pubs, bakeries, shops and more) retains a rural charm.

The sizeable remains of the 14th century Procurator’s House still stands proudly in the town. The Procurator, a man of some standing, was the legal representative of the monastery and it was his job to collect the rents and other dues, including tithes on behalf of the monastery.The Cadw listed building is the only one of its kind in Wales.

Magor is the ideal base for the Gwent Levels at Magor Marsh, and the Wales Coast Path.
