Barry on the south Wales coast is a vibrant coastal town with a bustling High Street, gorgeous parks and the Goodsheds and Innovation Quarter – a shopping, eating and relaxing destination featuring independent businesses in an industrial heritage setting

High Street, Island Road and Broad Street – on the western side of Barry – offer a super selection of shops and cafés, almost all owned by local people. These family-run businesses work together very successfully to promote this area as High Street Shopping Quarter. Within a small area, you’ll come across designer clothes, wooden toys, luxury items for your home and gorgeous florists.

Romily Park was originally constructed on land belonging to the Romilly family in 1898 and fully completed in 1911. It retains most of the original framework and features. The park has a bowling green, tennis courts, children’s play area, seasonal floral displays and a large open area for recreation. It is dog friendly, has public toilets and is open all year round.

Barry Island is famous for its golden beaches, family amusements, and colourful beach huts. Along Barry Island Sea Front there are various cafes and places to eat as well as public toilets with baby changing facilities.

You'll find a large sandy beach named Whitmore Bay which was the location for many scenes shot in the popular BBC series 'Gavin and Stacey'. The beach is accessible for buggies and wheelchair users and has a large promenade.

Barry Island also has a pleasure park which is open from Easter to September and has over 50 rides aimed at children of all ages and various amusement stalls. Entry to the pleasure park is free but there is a charge for rides, with discounted family tickets available for purchase.

The Barry Tourist Railway, part of the Barry Rail Centre, operates services for passengers on dates throughout the year from Barry Island station to Barry Waterfront station.

Barry Island railway station is on a short branch line from Barry station; trains run direct to/from Cardiff Central. Barry railway station is on the Vale of Glamorgan line from Cardiff Central to Bridgend.
