Penarth


Hotels, B&B's and Self Catering in Penarth

Penarth is a Welsh town in the Vale of Glamorgan, only 4 miles from the capital city, Cardiff. The town, with its traditional seafront, is a regular summer holiday destination and retains extensive surviving Victorian and Edwardian architecture. Its restored Art Deco Pier with art gallery, café and cinema is a popular attraction. Penarth boasts a number of green spaces and parks, including Alexandra Gardens, that link the seafront to the shops in the centre. Take a water taxi from the marina or walk, cycle or catch a land-train across the Barrage which forms part of the Wales Coastal Path. The clifftop walks to the bays of Lavernock, St Mary's Well and Swanbridge with their beaches and the historic hut where Marconi first transmitted radio messages over open sea, remain popular. Cosmeston Lakes Country Park and Medieval Village offers a great day out for all the family. The town has a 2-week-long Penarth Holiday Festival each July that features special events and celebrations.
