About Newport Transporter Bridge
Not available previously is the regular opening of the motor house, and the high level walkway, so if you've never tried it, and you're feeling energetic, why not have a go at climbing to the top? The views are spectacular and you'll be following in the footsteps of the many workers of over one hundred years ago who climbed the stairs and walked across the gantry twice every day just to save the halfpenny fares for the gondola ride.
Please bear in mind that on very wet or windy days it is not safe to use the high level walkway.
The bridge crossing forms part of the Wales Coastal Path and is an ideal stopping off point for walkers and cyclists using the route.
On your way home, call in at the Visitor Centre to pick up a memento of your visit, and chat to one of the friendly volunteers.
The Bridge itself featured in the British film 'Tiger Bay', Michael Portillo's 'Great Railway Journeys' and 'Welsh Towns' which also featured The Waterloo Hotel. Local café Fanny's Rest Stop has been used for location filming for 'Being Human'.
Bridge crossings will take place Wednesday to Sunday, 10am-5pm. The top walkway will also be open.
