Resting near the mighty River Usk and the Severn Estuary, Newport, or Casnewydd in Welsh, is Wales' third-largest city with a population of nearly 160,000 according to the 2021 census. A unitary authority since 1996, the city is intricately woven into the fabric of the Cardiff-Newport metropolitan area. A city of significant historical import, Newport, originally named "new castle on the Usk" or Casnewydd-ar-Wysg, has been around since Norman times when the first Newport Castle was raised.

Newport's narrative is one of continual growth and evolution, with its medieval port gaining prominence in the 19th century due to its focus on coal exports. The onset of the 20th century saw the docks decline, and Newport morphing into an important hub for manufacturing and engineering. Today, in addition to being a bustling modern city, Newport cradles a considerable rural area with scores of archaeologically significant villages. Home to the magnificent Newport Cathedral, the city is an exhilarating fusion of past and present.

When to visit Newport

To immerse yourself fully in Newport's diverse tapestry, consider visiting during the summer months of June, July, and August when the weather is delightfully warm and welcoming with average high temperatures reaching around 22°C. However, if you prefer avoiding the busiest tourist times, plan your visit around September, April or March which are generally drier months and a trifle less humid than the rest of the year. Newport is waiting to welcome you with open arms, so why not book your hotel with Lycafly and embark on an unforgettable Welsh adventure?
