Tredegar House
Newport, NP10 8YW

Tredegar House is a 17th Century mansion built upon a 15th Century manor house set in some 90 acres of parkland, and was home to the Morgans, a very influential family in Welsh life. The house was finally sold by the family in 1951 and became a school, and eventually became a council property. The house is open to the public for tours during the summer months.

Tredegar House often run themed events, and are currently considering a Doctor Who tour through parts of the building that are not normally open to visitors. This will hopefully include the attics and cellars.

Admission: In 2008, £6.05 for house tour, grounds are free
