Sitting at the muddy mouth of the River Usk and flanked by the detritus of heavy industry, Newport is never going to win any awards for beauty. However, Wales' third-largest city is in the process of smartening itself up, with the shiny new Friars Walk shopping complex opening up the historic city centre to a redeveloped riverside promenade. A handful of interesting sights more than justify a day trip to the city, but you're unlikely to be tempted to stay over.
