There’s quick, straightforward access from the North West along the M56 and A55. Motorway links with the Midlands are good too, and the same roads – the M6, M5 and M1 – also bring Anglesey within easy reach of the South of England.

The event village and startline is located just off junction 8a on the A55 Expressway. It is approximately 1 hour 15 from Chester, 1.5 hours from Liverpool, 2 hours from Manchester and 3 hours from Birmingham when travelling by car.


If you're planning a trip from Ireland, ferries depart from either Dublin Port or Dun Laoghaire and go directly to Holyhead Port. Holyhead is a half hour drive or direct train journey to the event.
