How long a walk from the bus to the train station?

by christine.j

Judging from what I've found on google it takes about 15 minutes to walk from the bus station - National Express stop - to the train station. However, I wasn't able to find a good map, so I pieced this together from the "how to get there" infos of some hotels. Does anybody know if it is about 15 minutes? Or much longer?
I'm still trying to find the best way to get to Abergavenny and Brecon and an open jaw ticket by National Express seems to be really good.
Thanks for any help.

The bus station is very near the railway station. A brisk walk would take 5 mins but with some luggage then about 10 mins. If on crutches etc then 15 mins would be about right.

It is possible to get a train to Abergavenny.

That's great, thanks a lot. I'm considering getting the flexipass for South Wales, then I can mix train and bus travel without having to buy a new ticket for each trip.

Travel Tips for Newport

Newport - a brief history

by aaaarrgh

Despite only recently becoming a city, Newport has a 900 year history. Unfortunately for Newport it has always been second best to Cardiff, 12 miles down the road!

If you arrive in Newport by train or car from England you will see the Castle, sandwiched between the railway bridge, road bridge and dual-carraigeway to the Bus Station. Built between 1093 and the mid 1400's it is now completely ruined.

The famous Welsh leader, Owain Glyndwr attacked and burnt Newport to the ground in 1402!!

Not until the Industrial Revolution of the early 19th century did Newport become anything significant. It developed into a busy port, with a canal bringing goods all the way from Brecon.

More will be said about the famous failed Chartist Unprising of 1839 in my other tips...

Today the city centre has one or two pleasant main streets which wind along their old routes. I quite like Newport's main shopping route - Commercial Street. But large dual carriageways and road systems have destroyed some of the city's character. Maybe one day things will change!
