Barry, the largest town in South Wales, is a picturesque seaside town, full of maritime history. With its beautiful family-friendly beaches and surrounding countryside to enjoy, it is a popular summer holiday resort town.
It is located in the Vale of Glamorgan, Wales, on the north coast of the British Channel. It is approximately 9 miles (14km) from Cardiff.
Once a small village, Barry now includes the larger neighbouring villages of Cadoxton, Barry Island, and Sully. Barry’s development was helped significantly by the Barry Docks, which in 1913 was the world’s largest coal port.
The town centre, with the Houlton Road shopping centre and High Street, both offer great shopping, from quirky local shops to nationally recognised stores.
Barry Island is close by, popular with visitors for its beautiful beaches, vibrantly coloured beach huts, and attractions for the whole family, not to mention being made famous by the much-loved TV programme, Gavin and Stacy.

Good communication from Richard who was there when we arrived. Great location for city centre well recommended Thank youMatthew
Fantastically cheap 24-hour off-road parking in a small padlocked carpark about 15 mins walk from city centre for only £5! Worth the walk. The padlock was a bit fiddly and would be tricky in the dark, but I figured it out eventually.Kim
