Barry is a town in the Vale of Glamorgan, on the North coast of the Bristol Channel and a mere 14 miles out of Cardiff, making this a very convenient place to live. In 1913 Barry had the largest coal port in the world, the Barry Docks, and this led to a rapid growth in population during the time. Barry is still a manufacturing town also allowing ships to sail to and from its port.
Barry has some very easily accessible transport buses traveling in and out daily between Llantwit Major, Penarth, Cardiff International Ariport and Cardiff City Centre. For those requiring travel for work, Barry is located a mere 3 miles from the Cardiff International Airport. An interesting fact to note about Barry is the amount of television series and movies that have been filmed there.
The much loved series Gavin and Stacey was set and partly filmed in Barry, the movie Submarine was filmed mainly in Barry, as well as the series Being Human in 2010, to name a few.
