With most of the site being controlled by Airbus, access is restricted. Quite often I see people waiting at the end of the runway (right side of pic) if the Beluga is taxiing out.
There is a road running from the bottom right of the photo - leading from Hawarden (off bottom of pic) to Broughton. You can just make out the emegency access gates on the left of that road, with a narrow grey road leading to the runway, with a dirt track just below. These gates are where I see most people watching.
The Airbus factory buildings themselves limit a lot of the view from anywhere else, more so now that the A380 factory is completed (just a building site on this photo (on the left).
