weekend of coaching newport

Authentic 19th century coaches drawn by highly-trained teams of horses will return to Newport from August 20-23, 2015, in the triennial renewal of a Weekend of Coaching, hosted by The Preservation Society of Newport County.

The public will enjoy free viewing of the colorful and historic coaches every day, as they drive through the streets of Newport and the grounds of the Newport Mansions, celebrating and preserving a century-old sporting tradition.

Below are links to maps showing the expected routes that the coaches will take on their daily drives, as well as estimated times that they will be passing or arriving at landmarks along the way.  All schedules are subject to change.
