Parking etc

Posted on: May 16th, 2012 by joel

Hi troops,

seeing as Port80 is right on top of us now, I just wanted run through parking etc.

I’ve created a custom map of Newport with a few important pointers on there (I’ll add more if needed).

On the map you’ll see:

The Train Station

Google Map is a little old though as it looks like a building site (no laughing please!). The station has been completed now and looks dang funky. Walking time to Port80 from here is about 10 mins.

Port80 (@ University of Wales Newport, City Campus)

Port80 is being held at the pretty impressive University of Newport City Campus sat right on the bank of the river. On the map I’ve plonked the port80 logo right on top of it.

NCP Car Park (expensive!)

*AVOID* This is a big multi storey located off the central, castle roundabout in Newport. Pretty expensive though – your best bet is to part at Kingway (which is damn closer to Port80 anyhow).

Kingsway Centre Parking (cheap as chips!)

Right next to the University where port80 is being held. Much cheaper than the NCP. Park here.

Revolution Bar

A decent sized bar and food place. We’ll be heading here after the event ends. I’ve reserved space for 25 to eat; please let me know if you’re joining us (that’s not to say you can’t eat if your name is not down; it’s just that I’ve warned them about 25).


If you simply want to ram a burger down your throat and get on to the beer (post event I hope). Then Maccy D’s is here.

Ye Old Murenger

Probably the best boozer in Newport I’d say. Sure I’ll be in here at some point on Friday night.

Etap Hotel

Some of you are staying here on the Thursday night. A mini-bus will be arranged to take you to port80 at 08:20 on the 25th. After that you’re on your own.
