Surely it’s about time you had an Afternoon Tea in Newport? Indeed, when it comes to indulgent scones and heavenly cake, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better place.
This city and unitary authority area finds itself in South East Wales. It lies on the River Usk close to its confluence with the Severn Estuary, some 12 miles northeast of Cardiff. Recent statistics suggest that Newport is the third-largest city in Wales. Plenty of opportunities, then, to find a great place for lunch.
Since medieval times, Newport has been a thriving port as well as a vital component of Wales’ economy. It grew out of the earlier Roman town of Caerleon before gaining its first charter in 1314.
Significant development took place during the 19th century when its port became the focus of coal exports from the eastern South Wales Valleys. Perhaps its most famous moment in history, however, was the Newport Rising of 1839 led by Chartist John Frost.
In the 20th century, the town’s docks declined in importance. However, it remained essential as a manufacturing and engineering centre. In 2002, Newport was granted city status and is now a flourishing tourist destination.
Why not make the most of your time here by visiting an Afternoon Tea Newport establishment? You won’t be disappointed.
