Gwent Adventures CIC Usk B6


The City of Newport is surprisingly rural, and nature lovers and twitchers from all over the country flock to the Newport Wetlands Reserve to see the wildlife and rare bird species.


The Canal Centre at Fourteen Locks and the Victorian Transporter Bridge, which is one of only three working in the world, are great examples of Newport’s industrial heritage.


The Mediaeval Ship, discovered in the banks of the River Usk, is the finest of its type ever found in the UK and its remains can be seen on open days throughout the year, and the nearby Roman fortress town of Caerleon is the most varied and fascinating Roman site in Britain.


The architectural wonder of Wales is Tredegar House, a magnificent Restoration mansion, and the seat of the Morgan family right up until the 1950s.

Caerleon


Caerleon is an attractive riverside town with pubs, restaurants, tearooms and the Ffwrwm Arts and Crafts Centre. It was one of the most important military sites in Roman Britain and visitors today can see at the National Roman Legion Museum how the garrison lived; the remains of the Fortress Baths, a giant Roman ‘leisure centre’; and the Amphitheatre, linked to the legends of King Arthur’s Round Table.


Why not complete the three quests of the Trail of the Legend of King Arthur? See www.legendofkingarthur.org for details, or follow the sculpture trail around the town – the legacy of the International Sculpture and Arts Festival held every summer – see www.caerleon-arts.org
