Tourism puts Newport on the map!

More and more visitors are now making their way to Newport with tourism now worth more than £286m to the local economy according to Newport City Council.

A total of 2.69 million people visited the city in 2015 which was up 4.6 per cent on the year before.

Last year also saw the official opening of the £100m Friars Walks shopping centre in Newport city centre.

Admiral employs more than 860 people in offices opposite Newport central railway station which were officially opened in 2014.

Our staff say we offer rewarding roles in an enjoyable environment with a good mix of fun and professionalism.

Call handler Annie Ahern (pictured below) joined Admiral in Newport three years ago and said she appreciates the close network of people she works with.

Annie said: "You get the satisfaction of helping customers in their time of need and there's so much room to progress and grow within the company."

Tourism in Newport last year had an economic impact of more than £286m - a rise of 8.3 per cent on 2014, according to the latest tourism figures.

Councillor John Richards, Newport City Council's Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Investment, said: "These latest figures demonstrate that tourism has again grown in the city and makes a significant contribution to the local economy."
