Newport is a vibrant, modern city with strong business investment potential, supported by excellent transport links and easy accessibility from England and the rest of Wales.

Cardiff Airport is within a 35-minute drive and London is just two hours away by train.

With state-of-the-art premises, a thriving student population and a workforce of 479,000 within half-an-hour’s reach of the city, it’s no wonder hundreds of businesses have already chosen to set up home in Newport.

“Since we opened our first office in Newport in 2008, it has been a great success. We are committed to the city and hope to grow our operation  there.” Huw Llewellyn, Admiral plc
