If the Hustle and bustle of Barry Island isn't for you, our rugged coastline with its high cliffs, nature reserves and country parks might fit the bill. With Portkerry Country park being only a walk away. With its towering viaduct, coastal path, pebble beach, and vast fields, it's ideal for a relaxing day out in the countryside.

Rich in History

With many heritage sites dotted around the area, there is plenty of history to observe. With Castles, burial mounds, and Roman tracks, some of Barry's history dates back hundreds of years. Also many of you might know Barry for the Steam railway. The Barry Railway brought coal down from the valleys to the new docks whose trade grew from one million tons in the first year to over nine million tons by 1903.  The port was crowded with ships and had flourishing ship repair yards, cold stores, flour mills and an ice factory.  By 1913 Barry had become the largest coal exporting port in the world.
