Stow Hill is both an electoral district (ward) and coterminous community (parish) of the City of Newport.
It is bounded by the River Usk to the east, George Street and Cardiff Road to the south, the Great Western Main Line to the southwest, Caerau Crescent, Caerau Road, Godfrey Road, Devon Place and Mill Street to the north. The ward contains the districts of St Woolos and Baneswell.
The ward covers most of the city centre including most of the city's major retailers as well as the centre for nightlife in the city, being home to many of Newport's well-known nightclubs and bars. The ward also contains Newport Castle on the banks of the River Usk and St Woolos Cathedral atop Stow Hill itself. Stow Hill's earliest inhabitant was, according to legend, Saint Gwynllyw. Apart from the Central Business District of Newport, there is also a significant resident population here in a relatively small area. Much of the housing is made up of rows of densely-packed Victorian terraced houses.
