Get on the water and have a go

 

Water is a really important asset and South East Wales is really lucky to have beautiful rivers and lakes, historic canals and mountain streams, as well as delicious, crisp drinking water!

On a visit Over the Bridge there are loads of ways that you can get on the water. How about booking a canal narrowboat and travelling along the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal. Or booking onto an adventure experience with your friends or family - there are plenty of places to have a go at stand-up paddleboarding or kayaking, and wild swimming is becoming very popular.

Sitting with a coffee and cake watching water is truly relaxing - at Llandegfedd Lake there is a balcony to ensure the very best view of the sailing, whilst at the Newport Wetlands Centre the views over the water allow you to catch sight of the birds and insects enjoying their environment.

Water is a key ingredients in many of the locally made produce. How about visiting Tiny Rebel Brewing Co. where you can discover how important water is to the beer production process, and taste some of the most recent brews.
