About

Newport is surrounded by beautiful landscapes - The Wye Valley, an area of Outstanding Beauty, the Vale of Usk, famous for its salmon fishing and the Brecon Beacons National Park and Forest of Dean both of which are less than an hour's drive, whilst the Newport Wetlands Centre is teeming with rare birds and beautiful lakes.

With the fantastic range of facilities and venues available in Newport, it is no wonder the city has been so successful in hosting events such as The Wales Open and The Tour of Britain, along with cultural events such as the Caerleon Arts Festival and the Tredegar House Folk Festival. Newport hosted the 2010 Ryder Cup at the Celtic Manor Resort.

No trip to Newport would be complete without experiencing the famous Transporter Bridge, one of the only bridges of its type in the world. The Transporter has dominated the Newport skyline for almost a century and has become the most iconic structure in the city.

Today many parts of the city are free from traffic and there are excellent shopping facilities. For a glimpse of the past, the indoor Victorian Market offers a range of goods from local produce to antiques. There are also 400 acres of parkland in which to relax.

Newport's International Sporting Village is home to the National Velodrome.

Caerleon - 3 miles north-east of Newport is Caerleon 'the fortress of the Legion' was one of the most important military sites in Britain during the Roman Empire. Today you can see it brought to life at the bath houses, the amphitheatre and the museum.

There are four National Cycle Network routes in Newport - Route 4 and Route 47 that form part of the Celtic Trail, Route 46 forms part of the proposed Heads of the Valleys route along the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal and Route 88 is from Newport city centre to Caerleon, a mainly level, riverside route, linking up the centre of Newport with Malpas, the Roman fortress at Caerleon and leading on to countryside around the Celtic Manor Resort, the Vale of Usk and Wentwood.

Newport railway station is on the South Wales main line to Cardiff.
