Camping in Newport

Newport is a city and unitary authority area of Wales. Standing on the banks of the River Usk, it is located about 12 miles east of Cardiff, and is the largest urban area within the historic county boundaries of Monmouthshire and the preserved county of Gwent.

Set in a beautiful 90 acre park, Tredegar House is one of the best examples of a 17th century Charles II mansion in Britain.

The city is known for its night-life, containing many pubs, bars and nightclubs. The most famous of these is probably T.J.'s, an alternative music club where Kurt Cobain of Nirvana proposed to Courtney Love. T.J.'s was voted one of the top 50 'Big Nights Out' in the world by FHM in December 1997. Newport City Live Arena and Newport Leisure Centre are popular concert venues.
