We live in Barry so we come here a lot throughout the year, the area the rides are in is a bit battered but none the less the rides do their job. There are some fab places to eat if you like fish and chips, the arcades are fab and the kids always love playing in them and there's quite... More

Lovely place and not to far away from where we live, the fair isn't the best though, lovely beach and johns is the best cafe and this is the main reason we come back if I'm honest X if you go to Barry please try out Johns best burger and chips

A word of advice.. I decided to treat my daughter to an afternoon over Barry Island on the rides. Excited soon turned to upset when she was refused entry on the trampoline. During the summer this ride was a firm favourite so without hesitation I purchased the tokens and sent her on her way. The young boy monitoring the ride... More

As avid Having and Tracey fans a recent visit to Cardiff meant we had to go to Barry. The beach is clean and sandy, the featured areas are easily recognised,the people are friendly.The coastline is pretty.That's it for the positives I'm afraid. We found Barry island to be a pretty sad place really. A clutch of cafes had little to... More

A lovely afternoon with a bracing walk, hot chips and doughnuts, hot chocolate and beer. Fun fair for the brave. Some fun presents can be found!

I used to come to Barry Island as a child, and enjoyed the fun-fair rides immensely back in the 70's and 80's. I knew the fair had changed ownership over the years, but naively assumed it would have kept up with the times. I was wrong and my own children were very disappointed with the attraction. It is expensive with... More

Literally only about 3 rides were on but managed to go on one ride. Marcos Cafe do brilliant Ice Cream! Beach is very nice, lots of dogs which is lovely to see. Parking... More
