Yes, it's an old street, loads of shops and eateries but it isn't the West Bank or Soho. I was a bit disappointed here I must say.

I strolled down Thames one morning just to see what was there. I found amazing little shops that had everything from tourist items to high end items. Some of the shops opened as early as 9 a.m. some not until 11 a.m. The shops were not big brand shops but more local shops and they had great things. I wish... More

If your in Newport you will surely walk down Thames Street. A very interesting mix of shops and buildings. Most are selling cheap rubbish that you see in every seaside town but the buildings are interesting.

This is the street you'll stroll down when you visit Newport. No shortage of restaurants, pubs, and shops... My wife was in heaven.

Shopping and food on Thames and the nearby Piers make Newport fun! We stayed on Bellevue and wish we'd stayed at one of the hotels near Thames instead. Traffic is awful in this area but the Transportation Center is very close by for trolleys to the mansions and other locations!

Everyone ends up on Thames Street. It is filled with shops of all kinds, and there are many restaurants. It is very lively at night, and an evening stroll should be part of your Newport experience.
