Things to See & Do
Newport is a vibrant city which is undergoing massive regeneration, but which has also retained it's historic buildings and character. It is surrounded by beautiful landscapes, including the Forest of Dean, the Wye Valley (which is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and the undulating Vale of Usk, famous for its salmon fishing.
For breathtaking walks, or a leisurely drive, the Brecon Beacons National Park, including Pen-y-Fan, which is the highest peak in Southern Britain, is less than an hour's drive away. Cyclists are also well catered for, with cycleways linking the city and rural areas, both locally and further afield. Golfers are spoilt for choice, with over thirty golf clubs in the area, eight of which are within ten minutes drive of the city centre.
Newport also has some wonderful attractions closer to home which are well worth a visit. Follow the links for more information.
