Newbridge-on-Wye was historically a stop off point for drovers, who moved livestock from place to place. Newbridge-on-Wye proved to be an ideal location for drovers to stop and rest because it afforded a safe crossing-point on the river Wye. This led to a settlement forming, including a large number of pubs. This fact is celebrated by the statue of a drover on the village green. Newbridge-on-Wye also sited a railway station on the Mid Wales Railway, until its closure on December 31, 1962. The site of the station is now occupied by a housing estate, although the old railway bridge still remains.
Half way between Rhayader and Builth Wells, Newbridge has a number of pubs and stopping off points to enjoy.
