Hotels in Newport

Surrounded by beautiful countryside, historical buildings and bustling shopping centres, Newport hotels are an excellent place to stay within reach of the Vale of Usk and Breton Beacons National Park.

History

There have been settlers in the area around Newport from the Bronze Age. One of the most ancient historical attractions near Newport is Caerleon, a Roman fort built in AD75 to defend the river crossing. At its height the fort was home of the 2nd Augustan Legion and housed 5,000 soldiers and horsemen, encompassing a temple, shops, baths and an amphitheatre. A trip to Caerleon today will take you the ruins and a charming village with a number of shops, pubs and tearooms.

The ruins of the 14th-century Newport Castle can be found beside Newport Bridge and history buffs will enjoy a trip to Newport Museum and Art Gallery. The museum holds a fascinating collection of artefacts and documents detailing the history of the area from prehistory to the present day. Also worth a visit is nearby Tredegar House, set in a 90-acre park and one of the finest examples of a 17th-century mansion in the country.

Culture and shopping

To experience Newport's thriving modern cultural scene head to The Riverfront Theatre and Arts Centre, a fantastic arts venue that hosts an enormous range of drama, comedy and dance performances as well as classes, talks and community workshops. The Dolman Theatre, owned and run by Newport Playgoers Society, is another great place to watch live theatre.

When it comes to shopping, Newport has a staggering amount of places to visit. The centre of Newport has a range of different shopping streets, including Newport Arcade, High Street, Commercial Street and Market Street. There are also a variety of shops in the Kingsway Shopping Centre and a collection of stalls selling everything from clothing to fresh produce at Newport Market.

Further afield

The area surrounding Newport is ideal for countryside walks and bike rides. Newport Wetlands Reserve on the edge of the city is a fantastic place to learn about the many species of birds living in the reserve. To the east of the city is the Forest of Dean and a short journey north from Newport will take you to the southern edge of the vast Breton Beacons National Park. If you drive west along the coast from Newport you'll soon reach Cardiff, the capital of Wales.
