Lliswerry (Welsh: Llyswyry) is both an electoral district (ward) and community (parish) of the city of Newport.

The parish is bounded by the River Usk to the east, Lilleshall Street and Telford Street to the northeast, the Great Western main line to the north, the original western end of Llanwern steelworks and Meadows Road to the east, and Nash Road, Traston Road, Corporation Road and Stephenson Street to the south. The Lliswerry ward is composed of both the Lliswerry and Nash parishes.

The ward is the site of the City of Newport Campus for Coleg Gwent (commonly referred to as 'Nash College') and the Newport International Sports Village. Lliswerry has a high school, a junior school and infants school, situated close to each other. The high school is adjacent to the college campus, with the junior and infants school located further north along Nash Road, the area has two churches St Andrews Church in Wales Church situated on Somerton Road and Lliswerry Baptist Church situated in Camperdown Road.

Lliswerry is well-known across the city for the railway bridge over Nash Road with 'This is Lliswerry with 2 L's' painted in white across it. So is it one or two Ls? The answer is both. Lliswerry is an anglicised version of the place name Llyswyry translating to Maiden's Court. (Llys - Court, Gwyryf > Wyryf > Wyry - Maiden). It is believed that there was a manor house in the area belonging to the King of Brycheiniog. His daughter had connections to the manor/court. It was likely that the house was in the area of Traston Road today.

The suburb is also home to Newport Stadium, home ground of the Newport County football team.
