The city has been a port since the Middle Ages with one of the few remaining transporter bridges in the world, this Grade I listed industrial masterpiece is a must-see. Designed originally to carry goods across the River Usk without interrupting the flow of river traffic, it’s still in operation today.

Big and little kids alike can check out the Tredegar Park Skatepark. With plenty of room, complete with enough bowls, slides and loops for both beginners and professionals.

For culture vultures, The Riverfront has something for everyone. Their year round programme of events, performances and exhibitions includes live music, classic theatre, right through to edgy satire. 

Head for the Newport Museum and Art Gallery to experience a vast collection of archaeology, social and natural history, including child-friendly interactive displays, while the art gallery features both classic artists and contemporary local talent.
