About Bridge to the Sea - Newport Seafarers (Dog Friendly) Walking Tour

We are welcoming dogs on our latest Seafarers Walk, so why not join us to discover and celebrate Newport's Nautical heroes and heroines with Antarctic stowaways, heroic rescuers, Hollywood liberties, pioneering women and even rogue torpedoes - uncover their stories!

In the company of local historian and author Andrew Hemmings, you’ll join the Newport Transporter Team on our popular journey exploring Newport around the Bridge, uncovering the fascinating tales of 13 key people and intriguing incidents...

‘Following in the footsteps of a century of countless sailors, we’ll be commencing our voyage of discovery from near Newport Docks, venturing out on this 5-mile circular walk, visiting six locations.

There will also be an opportunity to purchase copies of Andrew's book: 'Secret Newport' - an ideal gift.

If you intend to bring a dog with you please contact us directly: Gavin.Jones2@newport.gov.uk

We suggest parking at or around Mill Parade car park.
