Barry Island Tours

There are few places as quintessentially Welsh as Barry Island, a lively seaside resort known for its Blue Flag beaches and traditional Pleasure Park, and teeming with locals during the sunny months. It was hit British TV show Gavin & Stacey that put Barry Island firmly on the map and today the main pastime for visitors is touring the many filming locations seen in the comedy series, among them Marco’s Café, Stacey’s house and the arcade where Nessa works.

Barry Island isn’t actually an island, it’s a peninsula jutting out from the southern tip of Barry town, and at just 30 minutes by train from Cardiff, it makes a popular day trip from the capital. Easily explored on foot, the small town is crammed with cafes, quirky souvenir shops, amusements and ice-cream vendors, while the surrounding coast harbours a number of scenic walkways, sandy beaches and rock pools. 

Practical Info

Barry Island is located on the south coast of Wales, around 16 km south of Cardiff.
