Newbridge on Usk is a village on the banks of the River Usk in Monmouthshire, Wales. The small village stands at the normal tidal limit of the River Usk and is noted for the both the stone bridge and the Newbridge Inn and restaurant, which stands adjacent to the bridge. The River Usk rises on the northern slopes of the Black Mountain in Powys, Wales, and tumbles for most of its upper and middle reaches through the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park.
Newbridge on Usk lies below the steep Wentwood escarpment and a short walk across the bridge leads to the route of the delightful Usk Valley Walk, a 48 mile (77km) walk through the beautiful Vale of Usk to appreciate the true beauty of its largely unspoilt countryside. Follow the trail and visit the market towns of Caerleon, Usk, Chain Bridge, Llanvihangel Gobion, Llanellen, Abergavenny, Govilon, Llangattock, Crickhowell, Llangynidr, Aber, Talybont on Usk and Brecon. You are never far from the hills of the Brecon Beacons to the west or the Black Mountains to the east.
