Newport flourished as the main Welsh port for exporting coal, dug from the mines in the South Wales valleys. Since the rise of Cardiff (and the inevitable house and rental price rises) Newport has taken on a new lease of life. Its centre has the £100m Friars Walk retail and leisure development, and new theatres, cinemas, pubs and restaurants entice people in from all over the area.
Newport's excellent road and rail links to Bristol and Cardiff make it popular with workers from those cities who are looking for more affordable rents, and an easy commute. While the M4 runs past the city, many people take the train as you can be in Cardiff in 12 minutes by train or in Bristol in 40 minutes.
