Sitting on the south coast of Wales, Newport is an historic cathedral and university city. Newport boomed during the industrial revolution, and has recently undergone a huge regeneration that has given the city a boost.
With a booming night time economy, there are still many cultural sights to see, including the Newport Museum, the summer Newport Festival and the Riverfront Arts Centre. Residents love the area because of its stunning coastline and easy access to the Brecon Beacons – perfect for day-trippers or those who enjoy adventure sports. Try your hand at surfing and sailing, or just spend your time strolling along the miles of beach.

Newport is easy to access from England as a result of toll-free bridges over the Severn on both the M4 and the M48. This connects it with Bristol in 40 minutes and Bath in just under an hour. Travel to other major cities in Wales is also relatively easy. Cardiff is around a twenty minute drive, and Swansea takes around an hour. Because of this, residents of Newport are well placed to enjoy both Wales and England.
Trains are also good, with travel to Bristol, Birmingham and London leaving regularly from Newport Station. Locally, residents rely on trains and buses to get around from the suburbs or small villages that surround the city. Parking in the town centre is plentiful and easy to access.
Both the city centre and the suburbs are popular with locals. City-centre living in Newport allows views of the River Usk, so choose an apartment on Amelia Way or Rodney Road to make use of this. Alternatively, the areas of Maindee or Baneswell are a good option for a larger city centre property. However, it’s the city’s suburbs, in particular Caerleon and St Julians, that are most popular with families due to their period cottages and large family gardens.
When it comes to schools, there are a variety of good primary and secondary schools in the area. Rogerstone Primary School and Glasllwch Primary School have recently been well rated by Estyn as ‘excellent’. In terms of secondary schools, Bassaleg School and St Joseph’s R.C. High School received Estyn ‘good’ and ‘excellent’ gradings.
