The Kingsway Shopping Centre is an under-cover shopping centre in Newport city centre, Wales. The northern entrance is on John Frost Square adjoining the Friars Walk shopping and leisure complex. The east entrance is off Commercial Street and the west entrance off the A4042 Kingsway. The centre is a short walk from the high street shops of Commercial Street and High Street. Newport railway station is also a short walk away.

The Kingsway car park has over 1000 spaces and the adjacent Friars Walk car park holds 350 cars, both accessed from the A4042 Kingsway.

Kingsway Centre includes a range of high street and privately owned shops. It is adjoining Newport Museum, Art Gallery and Central Library and it is close to Newport bus station.[1] Kingsway Centre underwent a refurbishment and extension during 2007 and 2008.[2]

In October 2014 the centre was bought by Queensberry Real Estate, the developers of Friars Walk.
