Barry Island Family Ramble

Enjoy a walk around the coast path near Barry Island

Barry Island Train Station Station Approach Road Barry CF62 5TH

Barry Island Family Ramble – Monday 3rd April

Meeting point: Outside of Barry Island Train Station, Station Approach Road, CF62 5TH.

About this event:

This is a guided event for families to enjoy around the coastal path near Barry Island. The route is fully accessible so buggies, mobility scooters, and wheelchairs are welcome!

The plan is for everyone to have a fun family adventure as we head out around the coastal path taking in the amazing scenery but with a few fun activities along the way! The route will include a short section of road, but soon enough we’ll be onto the coastal path and near the beach.

The total distance is 2.3 miles, but there will be lots of chances to stop, take in the amazing coastal views, and also do some fun activities for all the family to enjoy. Every child in attendance will be given one of our Ramble & Scramble activity books to take home, but we’ll also be using them along the way to spot and identify the local wildlife on offer. The route finishes back at Whitmore Bay where there is a chance to sit and have refreshments from the local places on offer.

Numbers: capped at 20 people

Transport/Parking: There is an excellent and regular train service into Barry Island, but there is also ample car parking in and around the train station.

The guided walk is being managed and run by Ramblers Cymru in partnership with Transport for Wales.
