Grew up in Newport. It's got the outside reputation of being a bit of a st tip, rough etc but in all my time there I never really had any trouble. The nightlife is acceptable at best so you may wish to venture further down the M4 to Cardiff or Swansea for a proper night out. Personally I find Welsh women to be far more friendly than those of an Essex descent.

The people are mostly friendly, there are a few large council estate areas that you may wish to avoid (Pillgwenlly, Ringland, Duffryn) as the percentage of occupants who are genuine mouth breathers gets quite high.

The accent in newport isn't strong, it's more a neutral english with a hint of Welsh and a dashing of chav (youtube 'The Milk - Ross Kemp on Gangs' for an idea, also displays the excellent Welsh humour). It's mostly the phrases that are genuinely welsh (previously mentioned) and may confuse. People love a bit of light hearted banter and most adopt the 'We shag them, you eat them' attitude when presented with a bit of England on Welsh sterotype.

Overall not the best place ever but certainly an accomodating place to most.

Tell your boss Newport isn't really Wales, it's more of a suburb of Bristol really, that should cheer him up.

On the upside you're now in commuting distance of 'valley girls' - the cheapest night out and guaranteed shag you'll ever have, assuming you survive it! biggrin

I'm from the Valleys (butt), and the Newport accent consists of every sentence being ended with 'n all.

And the following translations:

Pined - Pound
Rinedabite - Roundabout
Clarte/Sparrr - Mate (i.e. A'ryyyeee Sparrrr/claaaaaarte = Alright Mate)

biggrin

Does it have a lid?

If so, make a point of lowering the seat AND lid. Then see if they complain, despite the fact it's just the same effort to raise the lid as lower the seat.

Of course, one should do that anyway to prevent the toilet aerosol effect.

Certainly in Carmarthenshire, where my family are from, Newport is honestly not considered as part of Cymru...

Not have the chance to try the Mango House in Magor, but the one if Cardiff is lovely.

Magor, now that's the place for an ex-pat English guy to reside, it's like little Bristol.
