Belle Vue Park

Book Tickets Online


Just outside Newport City Centre, Belle Vue Park has beautiful Victorian features. It was originally a donation from Lord Tredegar towards the end of the 19th Century, and with typical flair he didn’t skimp on the design or the landscaping. There are classical rockeries, a bandstand and an elegant pavilion, even a conservatory. Like all the best Victorian creations there are carefully sculpted streams and waterways, fountains and towering trees.

The National Eisteddfod was held in Newport in 1897, and the Gorsedd Circle still stands in the park. The lawns, water gardens, and Victorian ironworks are all in place today and the pavilion can be hired for private events. See the park webpage for details and a booking form.

While Belle Vue Park can be visited at any time of year and there is always something to see, it’s at its best in spring and autumn. Spring brings the magnolia trees into spectacular and exotic bloom. In October the ginkos and other deciduous trees change colour and shred their leaves in one of the finest displays of autumnal colour in South Wales.

Like Beechwood Ornamental Park (Newport’s other extensive Victorian park), Belle Vue has recently benefitted from a major renovation project. One and a half million pounds of heritage lottery money went towards restoring its former glory, with fantastic results. The park now looks just as good as it did when it opened more than a century ago, or maybe even better. It’s just a few miles from Newport centre so there is no reason not to find out for yourself!
