Barry is a popular seaside resort in the Vale of Glamorgan, Wales. Rich in maritime history, there’s plenty to do and see here, starting with the famous beaches. Perfect for all-round family fun in the sun, lie back and catch the rays, or see who can build the biggest sandcastle, while enjoying an ice cream from one of the many stalls and kiosks. Why not visit the peninsula, Barry Island, home of the wonderfully sweet Gavin and Stacey, the much loved BBC sitcom couple.

Cool off by taking a ride on the vintage steam train around the Island, stopping off at the Pleasure Park. Packed with exhilarating rides, including the 55 metre high Star Flyer!

Porthkerry Park is a breathtakingly beautiful area of shady woods, trickling streams, and meadowland, leading to a secluded pebble beach and wild rugged cliffs. Perfect for picnics, there are nature trails, mini-golf, and an exciting adventure playground. 

End your visit with a night of culture at Wales’ smallest theatre. The Small Space has a wide repertoire of shows, from magicians to comedy and classic movies, all performed in a very intimate 25 seat auditorium, complete with licensed bar!
