By train, it would be:

Newport - London Paddington (First Great Western)

Paddington - Kings Cross (Underground)

Kings Cross - Kings Lynn (First Capital Connect)

Kings Lynn - Fakenham (bus X8, Norfolk Green)

Fakenham - Walsingham (bus 29, Norfolk Green).

(or taxi Kings Lynn - Walsingham)

By coach:

National Express, Newport to London (Victoria)

National Express, London Victoria to Fakenham (one departure a day, leaves London at 14.30 and arrives Fakenham at 18.25. Taxi to Walsingham.

Looking at those answers, I'd look round your local Catholic and Church in Wales churches (and the local Catholic and Church in Wales diocesan offices) to see if there's a convenient pilgrimage you can join.

By more or less non-stop bus, it's about 4 hours from Newport to Walsingham (my house is off the route, but we're 3 hrs from Walsingham and a bit under 2 from Newport).

Looks like it's about 5 days by ordinary public transport. But pilgrimages to Walsingham are the fad du mois in the main Christian churches these days.

"Walsingham is an Anglican shrine."

Walsingham HOUSES an Anglican shrine. And a Catholic one. And a Polish Orthodox one. And a Russian Orthodox one. And a Greek Orthodox one.

In fact, a significant proportion of pilgrimages start at the (now Catholic) Slipper Chapel, then go on to pray at the Anglican shrine (roughly where the Holy House was venerated pre-Reformation). Partly out of ecumenism: partly because that's the route medieval pilgrimages routinely took. They'd take their shoes off at the Slipper Chapel, then go barefoot to the shrine built where Richeldis had her vision.

If there's one place in Britain where inaccurate sectarian points scoring is especially inappropriate, it's Walsingham.,

Keeping to the travel core subject in this forum is appropriate. Stet.
