Drive into South Wales on the M4 and Newport is the first city you’ll come across. Most visitors stick to the lanes of the motorway, eager to reach Cardiff, Swansea or the stunning vistas of the Gower Peninsula, resigning Newport to the rear-view mirror. But those who take the exit and visit Newport discover a city with ancient roots and a clutch of medieval and Roman treasures. They find a city of bridges and curious buildings that reveal the illustrious legacy of this city’s trading past. They might also stumble upon Newport’s lively nightlife scene.

If you’ve arrived here by train, Newport car hire is a sound investment for getting about and visiting the local attractions, especially if you plan to take a lungful of fresh air in the sea of countryside that makes up large patches of Gwent and nearby Monmouthshire. Car rental is a good idea too if you are staying in the outlying areas of Newport or at the Celtic Manor Resort. It’s a 15-minute drive between the city centre and the famed golf resort, which hosted the Ryder Cup in 2010.

Having a car will also make it easy to reach the fascinating Roman fortress of Isca Augusta and the National Roman Legion Museum in the nearby village of Caerleon.

Back in Newport, be sure to visit the Transporter Bridge, a rare form of transport that hauls passengers across the River Usk in a kind of aerial carriage for a fare of £1 (£1.50 if you want to come back, too). The ruins of Newport Castle, which perch on the edge of the Usk, are also worth some time.
