You get a little frustrated, perhaps, as you crawl along the seemingly endless narrow roads to reach the car park and then the longish walk to reach a point when you can see the chapel....but then you can’t help but stare open mouthed at the...More

Family afternoon visit, free car park at top of cliffs, short walk to location, but views are amazing even before you walk down to the chapel. Loved the location, even investigating the cliffs outside, sea view incredible! Well worth a visit, take a flask and...More

There are many steep steps down to the chapel but it is a beautiful peaceful place with stunning views. I imagine the steps would be treacherous if they were wet and impossible if you had mobility problems.

Obviously not for anyone with mobility problems. Well worth the steps down. Lovely little chapel on a pebble beach, a good spot to see seals from as they are usually here

A quaint chapel set in the cliffs. Nice short walk to the chapel itself & good views of the sea. Take care to check MOD firing schedule restrictions.

A short walk from the car park down some slippery stone steps, so be careful. A very atmospheric place and his ribs really do look like ribs. Can be visited easily by incorporating it into a longer walk from Bosherston Lily Ponds.

This is really worth a visit. There’s ample free parking and clear pathways. You can enjoy walking along the cliff top to St Govan’s Head as well as walking down the steps to the tiny St Govan’s Chapel. It’s quite remarkable how it was built...More

I did visit on a Saturday, no problems at all. From the firing range's published schedule it would seem they don't do firing practice on weekends. It was very well worth the visit.
