Minster packed with history and well signed. Various language guides. Coffee shop sells a variety of coffees from around the world , cakes largely homemade. Good value, friendly atmosphere, room for wheelchairs, buggies and plenty of space to chill.

Its free, easy to find and serves delicious coffee and cake. This is a lovely big church with royal history and the sort of calm welcome that ensures you can enjoy the peace of a sanctuary from the hectic noise of the modern world.

A lovely place to visit in the centre of Newport. Nice atmosphere and plenty to see in this historic church, I think I shall have to return and spend time looking around in detail. They also serve very good coffee and cake.
