The Welsh city of Newport is located in south wales and is roughly 140 miles to the west of London and is home to the University of South Wales and to the Newport School of Art, Media and Design. The city also has three major museum. The Newport Museum has collections that include Archaeology, Social History, Art and Natural History, the National Roman Legion Museum and the Roman Baths Museum which are both located at Caerleon in the city. In July each year an Arts festival is held in Caerleon and Roman Military re-enactment in the amphitheatre, the largest restored amphitheatre in Britain. The remains of the Roman baths, barracks and fortress walls of Isca Augusta can be seen at Caerleon. Caerleon also has literary associations to the legend of King Arthur through Geoffrey of Monmouth and later Arthur Machen (who was born in Caerleon) and Alfred Lord Tennyson wrote his Idylls of the King in Caerleon.
The city also has Tredegar House which is set in a 90 acre park. The house is a fine example of 17th century Charles II mansion, although th earlier parts of the house date back further, to the late 15th century. The house was home to he Morgans who lived there until the 1950's.
Located in the West Midlands region of England, the city of Wolverhampton isn't well known as a tourist attraction, those visiting friends at the University, enjoying a football match at the famous Molineux Stadium or attending a concert at one of the fine local music venues will probably be pleasantly surprised by what this city has to offer.
Bus services originate from the city's bus station, which is located close to the railway station. There are regular services to all parts of the city, although it should be noted that many services stop at around 11pm. Buses from Wolverhampton also travel to the towns of the Black Country (including Dudley, Sandwell, West Bromwich and Walsall) and to Birmingham, although the journey by road can be quite long.
A more recent addition to Wolverhampton's public transport system is the Midland Metro. Regular and frequent trams start at Wolverhampton St George's stop in Bilston Street (very close to the city's main shopping area on Dudley Street) and pass via Bilston, Wednesbury, West Bromwich and Sandwell, and terminate at Birmingham Snow Hill railway station, a few minutes walk from Birmingham New Street railway station.
