The Cliff Walk was a real highlight of our stay in Newport. We were fortunate with the weather - there wasn't a cloud in the sky and this made photo opportunities plentiful. The sun was shimmering off the sea and it was so peaceful. As for the mansions - well, what can you say, they are just out of this world. To think these are/were holiday homes in most cases, used for a few weeks a year is just staggering. The only word of caution I would say is although it is only 3.5 miles long the last third or so of the walk is quite craggy. Very different to the paved walkways at the outset, so make sure you wear trainers as a minimum. Took 2.5 hours including short stops for photos etc.
