Newport, in Gwent, is a cathedral city in south east Wales. The city lies on the River Usk close to its confluence with the Severn estuary and is roughly 10 miles to the east of Cardiff, Wales' capital city. Newport has been a port since medieval times when its castle was built by the Normans. The city grew rapidly when the port began to play an important role in exports of coal that had been mined in the eastern valleys of South Wales. Newport remained the largest coal exporting port until Cardiff took over in the 1850's.
Newport's main shopping area is the pedestrianised streets of the city centre which include the High Street, Newport Arcade, Market Arcade, Commercial Street, Skinner Street, Bridge Street, Upper Dock Street, Market Street and John Frost Square. There is also the Kingsway Shopping Centre which is an indoor shopping mall.
Newport Transporter Bridge is one of the few remaining working bridges of its type in the world and featured in the film Tiger Bay. Visitors can travel on the suspended cradle most days and can walk over the top of the steel framework on bank holidays. The only other British example is Middlesbrough Transporter Bridge. Open days are occasionally held to view the renovation of the historically important Newport Ship.
The city of York in North Yorkshire is a flourishing city with long and interesting history and is only two hours by train from London. The city is known around the world for its exquisite architecture, its many cobbled streets and of course the iconic York Minster. For a slightly different perspective on the city why not visit The York Army Museum which explores the history of two of Yorkshire's famous regiments, the Royal Dragoon Guards and the Prince of Wales's Own Regiment of Yorkshire. The museum has over eighty showcases displaying military artifacts collected over 300 years. Alternatively, for a more relaxing and contemplative experience visit the nearby 12th century Rievaulx Abbey located in the middle of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. The Abbey became one of England's wealthiest monasteries before its dissolution by King Henry VIII in 1538. There is an indoor interactive museum and the Work of God and Man exhibition which shows how religion mixed with business in the lives of the monks. Whilst at the Abbey there are plenty of walking and cycling routes to enjoy the spectacular scenery.
