Enjoy a visit to one of the most significant late 17C houses in the whole of the British Isles.

For over 500 years the home of one of the great Welsh families, the Morgans, later Lords Tredegar. In 1951, Tredegar House was stripped, the remaining contents were auctioned, and the estate was sold. After 1951 the house was bought by the Catholic Church as a convent school. It was bought by the Newport Corporation Council in 1974, giving rise to its then status as "the grandest council house in Britain". Leased by the NT in 2011. Free flow visit allowing you to wander through the house, gardens, orangery, shop and of course visit the tea rooms at your leisure.
