For too long, Newport has lived in the shadow of its close neighbours, Cardiff and Bristol, and any tourist campaigns to attract visitors to the city seem to focus on what’s nearby.


This app, written by someone who knows Newport well, flags up the must-see places like the iconic Transporter Bridge and 17th century Tredegar House, but also invites visitors to explore a little further within the city’s borders and get to know the real Newport.


‘Stop and stare’ echoes the words of the town’s most famous poet, W H Davies, and is a reminder that sometimes we really do need to slow down to see what’s right under our noses.



Newport, Wales introduces you to the charms of Wales’ first city in terms of location. Under 20 miles from the English border and located on the bank of the River Usk, Newport grew rapidly as a result of the flourishing iron and coal industries.

As well as a wealth of information and links to external websites, this app includes:

  •  integrated maps
  •  current information about the weather
  •  local events listings
  • a convenient phone book.

Newport, Wales is available for iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, and Windows Phone devices.
