It's local and ok for a stroll but the whole area is a bit of a dive. Everything is run down but idea of you have kids who are happy to have a look on the arcades and play two pence machines penny pushers. You have to go knowing it's a run down place to appreciate it for what it... More

Good to see that this facility is now open most days around the year. They are trying to renovate it and provide modern rides.

Good place to visit in the winter months with dogs as they are allowed on the beach which is a great one. Quite a few coffee shops to enjoy a cuppa and lots of games arcades for children and teenagers (and adults !). Most coffee shops are dog friendly too. Also have an amusement park open in the summer months.... More

We had a lovely walk around Barry with Chay and Hooch. Lovely clean beach where Hooch enjoyed his run. Plenty of places eat and amusements for children. Places featured in TV program Gavin and Stacey easy to recognise.

Tried the big wheel out on the weekend, having been on the London one, the Cardiff winterwonder land one, this one is just way too fast to enjoy. The Music played in the park isn't very family friendly! (Lots of swearing) Just glad to see them doing some work and trying to bring it back to life. Slow the wheel,... More

I think it is a litle on the expensive side. Certainly car parking fees are way over the top. The fair looks good, my grandchildren like it. The beach is beautiful and well kept, although I would keep dogs off it all the year round.

We went on the Barry Eye, though London has forbidden official use of this name it's what locals have affectionately called it. It's a new Big Wheel of course! Great views over Barry, Barry Island & the Bristol Channel. It was a fabulous winter sunset too.
