Tried the big wheel out on the weekend, having been on the London one, the Cardiff winterwonder land one, this one is just way too fast to enjoy. The Music played in the park isn't very family friendly! (Lots of swearing) Just glad to see them doing some work and trying to bring it back to life. Slow the wheel,... More

I think it is a litle on the expensive side. Certainly car parking fees are way over the top. The fair looks good, my grandchildren like it. The beach is beautiful and well kept, although I would keep dogs off it all the year round.

We went on the Barry Eye, though London has forbidden official use of this name it's what locals have affectionately called it. It's a new Big Wheel of course! Great views over Barry, Barry Island & the Bristol Channel. It was a fabulous winter sunset too.

How the council allow this place to stay open is a mystery. Dangerous surface to walk on, potholes & rubbish everywhere, matting in arcade v uneven, very rude staff, if you cud find one. This is the place that gives Barry Island a bad name, please Vale council close it down before sum1 has a serious accident.

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!
