Newport High Street
Newport is the third biggest city in Wales. Sitting picturesquely on the banks of the River Usk, its history stretches back to the middle of the 12th century. It was not, however, until the Industrial Revolution 600 years later that Newport started to really flourish as a port city because of the discovery of iron and coal fields nearby.
Today, Newport is a popular tourist decoration because of its beautiful natural location and also because there are lots of different attractions both in the city and in the surrounding countryside. Venues such as the Riverfront Arts Centre and Rodney Place on the opposite bank of the river provide all the entertainment you could want, and at Newport Museum there are excellent exhibits concerning the history of the city.
If you want to enjoy the best of the city without worrying about parking in Newport, NCP’s Newport car park at High Street is the perfect place to leave your car while you explore the many attractions.
