Getting Around 

Getting around Newtown is easier than ever with a wide array of different transport modes. Click on your mode of transport below to begin.


Newtown is situated on National Cycle Route 81 which runs through the town. Route 81 runs from Aberystwyth to Wolverhampton, with the section running through Wales called Lôn Cambria. The route can be shown on the map below.

In addition, Newtown is very lucky to have a bike repair station situated in our green spaces. The location of this can be seen on the map below.


Newtown is an amazing place for a walk - around the town centre, through the green spaces or a hike in the hills.

There is an active group called Walking Newtown who develop and maintain a range of walks around the town.
