Fishguard is situated on the south-west coast of Wales, and is the nearest British port to New York used by Atlantic liners. It affords the quickest means of reaching London, and is also a convenient port for the Continent. In addition, many parts of England and Wales are within easy access of Fishguard.



The New Port of Call for Ocean Liners

The new port of call for Ocean Liners is one of the finest natural harbours in the world, and affords excellent facilities for the rapid transfer of passengers and baggage from Ocean Liners. A considerable saving of time is effected by Passengers landing at Fishguard. Special trains formed of Vestibuled Coaches and Restaurant Cars run to London after the arrival of Liners, the journey of 262 miles occupying about 4 3/4 hours, whilst the direct connections to Paris, s-c., frequently save a day over any other route.
