About Bridge to the Sea - Winter Solstice Newport Seafarers Walking Tour

Take a break from the pre-Christmas bustle by joining our popular walk celebrating Newport's Nautical heroes and heroines with Antarctic stowaways, heroic rescuers, Hollywood liberties, pioneering women and even rogue torpedoes - discover their stories!

On the shortest day of the year and in the company of local historian and author Andrew Hemmings, you’ll join the Newport Transporter Team on a 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 at the Mission to Seafarers in Newport Docks, where you can enjoy a screening of ‘Newport and the Sea 1914-1918’ before 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.

This is a free event but donations are always appreciated for our Bridge project!

We suggest parking at or around Mill Parade car park.
