Ospreys fly-half Sam Davies kicked all of Wales's points as the home side were outscored by three tries to none.
England led 15-9 at the break with three Davies penalties eclipsed by an early try from Exeter wing Jack Nowell and the first of two by Leicester flanker Harry Wells.
It came just a minute before the interval after the referee had harshly adjudged that Dragons No. 8 Ieuan Jones had dragged down a maul and shown him yellow.
Davies's boot kept his side in touch in the second period, but opposite number Henry Slade also enjoyed a fine evening at goal to keep England in control in testing conditions.
A fifth Davies penalty reduced the lead to 21-15 going into the final 10 minutes as Wales, with Scarlets full-back Jordan Williams a threat, went in search of a glorious finale.
But the spoils went to the visitors, with the win sealed when Wells rumbled over for his second in the final minutes.
