Travel to Penarth
Penarth is a Victorian sea-side town 4 miles southwest of Cardiff in Wales. It has impressive Victorian architecture and known for its pier and extensive parks. It is getting the impression from certain people that its turning into a cafe town. Penarth population is mainly made up of people commuting to local city, Cardiff.
The town retains its quiet and refined Victorian atmosphere, with its promenade, recently restored 19th century pier, Art-deco pavilion and Italian pleasure gardens. The splendid Victorian parks leading down to the beach earned it the nickname The Garden by the Sea.
Penarth has some fine Victorian architecture and leafy affluent streets. The marina is an attractive area, especially the splendid Old Custom House which now houses two excellent waterside restaurants. Don't miss the walk along the amazing new barrage to Cardiff Bay - or catch a boat to the city or nearby Flat Holm Island.
Close to the resort is Cosmeston Lakes Country Park and its fantastic reconstructed Medieval Village, showing life as it really was in the 14th century.
