What's Newport like?
Newport is the third-largest city in Whales, located just over the Severn Bridge. On its outskirts lies Caerleon, written about as one of the most important cities of ancient Britain. One of the favorites for the possible site of King Arthur's Camelot, the area has many connections to Britain's mysterious king. Whether the myth holds any truth, the area was inhabited by the Romans and an impressive amphitheatre still remains. Newport Castle, circa 14th century, is now an ambient reminder of its long important past, standing on the banks of the river Usk. Newport is a young city, with a vibrant arts scene. Surrounded by the Wye Valley, an area of outstanding beauty, as well as the Vale of Usk, famous for salmon fishing, there are plenty of opportunities to explore the beautiful Welsh countryside. Many Newport hotels have wonderful views over the river and the rolling countryside around. Sample the famously friendly Welsh pubs and some artisan ales in the town centre. For shopping, Westgate Street is a great choice.
