Barry is a seaport on the Vale of Glamorgan coastline which owes its modern prosperity to a 19th century decision to build docks to rival those at nearby Cardiff.
It is more famous, however, as a place of seaside fun thanks to Barry "Island", a chunk of land jutting out into the sea, and brought to greater prominence since the filming of the TV series, "Gavin & Stacey". With sandy beaches, fairground rides and an American-style amusement park, it was for a long time a major holiday hot spot.
The town takes its name from St. Baruc, who is buried on the "island", which also has Bronze Age burial mounds and the ruin of a Norman castle dating to the 12th century.
Porthkerry Country Park, with over 200 acres of open space, lies close to the town centre.
The Barry Island Railway Heritage Centre is a haven for loco-spotters while the Welsh Hawking Centre is a "must see" for visitors.
