Magor services (in Welsh: Gwasanaethau Magwyr) is a motorway service station on the M4, located just off junction 23A, at Magor near Newport, in Monmouthshire, South Wales.

History[edit]

The services opened in 1996 along with the Second Severn Crossing and was first operated by the Granada group. Subsequently managed by First,[1] the services became dilapidated and lacking in facilities and in April 2007 were voted the worst in Britain by members of Vans United.[2] After selling their other two motorway services (Bridgwater and Rivington) to Moto and EuroGarages respectively. In August 2011, it was announced that Magor services had been sold to Roadchef.[3][4][5]
