Newport Tourist Information
Newport (Casnewydd) is a vibrant city which sits on the banks of the 63-mile long River Usk, it is positioned just over twelve miles from Cardiff and roughly nineteen miles from Abergavenny.

Newport offers an excellent range of shops, here you will find lots of your favourite high street named retailers complimented with many local independent shops. As with its shops, this energetic city has lots of takeaways, delis, cafes, restaurants and pubs, which can cater for quick snacks on the go to something more substantial to really fill you up.

Nestled within a beautiful 90-acre park and managed by the National Trust is Tredegar House, it's a fabulous mansion and walled gardens that once belonged to the powerful and prominent Morgan family. Today, visitors can wander around the opulent Grade I listed mansion with its beautiful rooms and get to grips with the upstairs/downstairs life of the Morgan's and their servants by dressing up, listening to one of the daily introductory talks or taking a tour. Outside there are three distinctive characterful gardens called the Orchard Garden, the Cedar Garden, and the Orangery Garden.

Just over a five-mile drive from the city centre and located on the opposite side of the River Usk lies the Newport Wetlands, a wonderful haven for wildlife and a great place to escape the stresses of life for a few hours. The wetlands, with its stunning views of the Severn estuary, has an RSPB visitor centre, a number of nature trails, a cafe, shop and children's play area. Whatever the season, there's lots of wildlife to see with many different types of birds, dragonflies, butterflies, moths, as well as grass snakes, otters, badgers and moles.

Located off junction 27 of the M4 motorway and about two and a half miles from Newport city centre is The Fourteen Locks Canal Centre, a heritage and visitor centre positioned at the top of the renowned Cefn Flight of Locks (a flight of fourteen locks). The centre houses a computer-based information point which allows visitors to take themselves on a ‘virtual’ journey along the canal, the information point also educates its users on how a canal lock works.

Keen golfers are extremely well catered for in and around Newport, as there are no less than ten golf courses to choose from, all within a seven-mile radius of the city centre.
