Well-known as a location for the popular TV show Gavin and Stacey, Barry Island Pleasure Park offers a great family thrill, boasting seven new rides including classics like the dodgems and the waltzers, plus at least six rides for really young kids (and mums!). This vintage-style theme park has something to offer for the whole family – from a mirror maze to pony rides.
