Newport City

Image of Newport castle

Newport is a multi-cultural city with its own unique atmosphere, where traditional industries sit alongside new electronics and financial service sectors.

Standing at the gateway between England and Wales, Newport covers a geographical area of just over 73.5 square miles and is a vibrant, forward-thinking city steeped in a rich industrial heritage, dating from the nineteenth century when its important strategic location was first recognised.

After losing some of its core industries, the city is successfully proving that it can re-establish and adapt itself as a centre of modern industry and commerce.

HMS Severn

Newport is affiliated with Royal Navy warship, HMS Severn.

HMS Severn received the Freedom of Newport in 2006 and makes regular visits, with members of the ship’s company exercising their privilege as Freemen to march through the streets of the city. Events including football matches between the ship’s company and the local community help to strengthen this relationship.
