Cultural attractions in and around Newport

Conference attendees will be able to enjoy fascinating cultural experiences, for example a visit to the first-century Roman ruins in nearby Caerleon, which feature a magnificent amphitheatre and the only Roman legionary barracks still on view in Europe.

Those interested in mediaeval history may like to visit any of the hundreds of castles nearby: Wales has more castles per square mile than any other country in Europe, and there is a ruined, 14th-century castle in Newport itself. Country parks and stately homes are added attractions.

Newport is also famous for its docks and for its remarkable transporter bridge, one of only six examples left worldwide.
