About Newport

Newport is a cathedral and university city and unitary authority area in southeast Wales.  In 2011 it was named the third-largest city in Wales, with a city population of 145,700 and an urban population of 306,844. The city forms part of the Cardiff-Newport metropolitan area with a population of 1,097,000. Here are a few ideas for days out with your future foster family:

Newport Transporter Bridge

One of the few remaining working bridges of its type in the world and featured in the film Tiger Bay. Visitors can travel on the suspended cradle most days and can walk over the top of the steel framework on bank holidays. The only other British example is Middlesbrough Transporter Bridge. Open days are occasionally held to view the renovation of the historically important Newport Ship.

Parks and playing fields

The main municipal parks in Newport are Tredegar Park, Belle Vue Park, and Beechwood Park. The main municipal playing fields are at Tredegar Park, Coronation Park, Glebelands, Pillgwenlly sports ground, Kimberley Park, Shaftesbury Park, and Caerleon Broadway.

Caerleon Roman Fortress and Baths

The Roman Baths Museum lies inside what remains of the fortress of Isca Augusta close to the National Roman Legion Museum. The baths museum has a covered walkway over part of the remains of the military bathhouse. There was a frigidariumtepidarium, and caldarium, as well as an open-air swimming pool.
