Cwmbran City Guide

Established in 1949, Cwmbran is a relatively new town compared to many of the towns and locations in the surrounding hills and valleys whose history in many instances dates back to Roman times. Which isn’t to say that this lively little town isn’t making up for lost time – far from it – Cwmbran is in fact home to one of Wales’ biggest shopping centres, with 170 top brand shops, restaurants and cafes.

Cwmbran also boasts a leisure centre, community farm, theatre, stadium, and golf and country club. And with Newport’s rich industrial and historical heritage just a few miles to the south, and the Brecon Beacons a short trip north you will never be short of things to do in Cwmbran.

Shopping in Cwmbran

At the very heart of Cwmbran is the Cwmbran Shopping Centre, one of Wales’ biggest shopping centres with 3,000 free car parking spaces and home to a huge selection of top name stores, cafes, restaurants and even an indoor market. The Centre takes particular pride in its impressive range of the latest designer clothing brand fashions and jewellery.

And beyond all the retail therapy you could possibly need, if you’re looking to be entertained the shopping centre also has a cinema and bingo hall ensuring fun for all the family.

Sport in Cwmbran

Home ground to Cwmbran Town football club, Cwmbran Stadium is a multi-purpose venue that includes floodlit outdoor football and hockey pitches, as well as a state-of-the-art fitness suite and various spa facilities and studios spaces. What’s more, the stadium is enjoying a period of redevelopment that includes the creation of a vertical adventure playground, a soft play centre and a cafe.

If you like to keep fit then you’ll want to check out the gym and sauna facilities at Cwmbran’s local golf and country club, which also boasts a spectacular 18-hole golf course.

Culture and Events in Cwmbran

Cwmbran boasts a lively cultural scene, not least of which is the Cwmbran Big Event that takes place alongside the town’s boating lake in June and is a joyous celebration of music, sport and children’s activities.

And of course Newport’s three museums are very nearby and offer a wealth of Art and Natural History, Social History and Archaeology to explore.

Nature in Cwmbran

Cwmbran is surrounded by some of the most delightful landscapes in the land. The Wye Valley is so breathtaking in fact that it actually inspired the development and birth of British Tourism as an organised and professional endeavour. The Vale of Usk meanwhile, with its famous salmon fishing, is a mecca for fishermen from all corners of the land.

Ever so slightly further afield is the Forest of Dean, one of the  last ancient royal forests in Britain, whilst a short drive north will bring you to the phenomenal Brecon Beacons National Park, home to South Wales’ highest mountain peak Pen y Fan.

Enjoy Cwmbran

A new town with a big personality, Cwmbran makes the very most of its scenic local and close proximity to both Newport and all of South Wales’ much loved landscapes.
