Newport Transporter Bridge

The Newport Wonder

Built in 1906, the Newport Transporter Bridge has stood for over a 100 years as a symbol of the industrial heritage of the City and wider area. Standing majestically over the River Usk, the bridge can be seen clearly from most parts of Newport.

Scale the bridge for a majestic walk over this landmark of the industrial revolution, or simply take a cheap ride via car, bike or on foot on the gondola over the river.
