Known for its critical role in the Industrial Revolution during the 19th century, Newport is now a home to a diverse multicultural community. With a rich history and a wealth of cultural attractions, there are plenty of family friendly activities throughout the city.
Head for the Newport Museum and Art Gallery and explore an impressive collection of artefacts, from tools used by Bronze Age hunter gatherers who occupied Wales, to weapons and prints from the 1839 Chartist uprising. The Gallery displays art from local and international artists, in a variety of mediums.
Enjoy the fresh air by taking your bicycle on the train and taking one of the four National Cycle Network routes in Newport. Tree-lined lanes and a peaceful quietness are the perfect anecdotes to everyday life, while big and little kids can experience a bolder alternative to biking and head for Tredegar Park Skatepark. Wide enough to perform daring tricks, they will be showing off their ollies and frontside 180s in no time.
Self-professed theatre and music buffs should catch a show at The Riverfront. A wide selection of live events ranging from comedy, ballet, theatre and musical acts fill their year-long programme. With something to suit every taste, why not see who’s performing.
If you just want to relax and have a picnic with your family, then Brenton Point State Park is an ideal place to visit. With a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean, a quiet afternoon in this park is the perfect way to recharge your batteries.
