Newport, sitting on the River Usk, lies to the north of Cardiff, and it’s a vibrant, bustling cosmopolitan town, thanks to its thriving university culture and rich musical heritage.
Your first stop should be the awe inspiring, not-for-the-faint-hearted transporter bridge. Allowing you to look down - if you dare, on the whole of Newport lying beneath you. At the other extreme of scale, the Tiny Rebel brewing company is the only Welsh brewery to win Champion beer of Britain! Often hosting festivals and live music gigs, this is the place to relax. Nearby is the cultural hub of Newport - Le Public Space. This large area brings music, art, culture and community together, with events, exhibitions and workshops open to all.
If you fancy a stroll, head for the Fourteen Locks Canal and Heritage Centre.This beautifully peaceful area is ideal for a bite to eat. Family and dog friendly, the atmosphere is warm and welcoming, perfect for rounding off your visit to Newport.
