Pocket Guide: Cardiff Intl. Airport Hotels

Cardiff Airport is located in the village of Rhoose, around nine miles from the city centre, and close to the town of Barry. Barry is a seaside resort with several beaches and is also home to Barry Island Pleasure Park. There is a good selection of accommodation near the airport, from luxury five star hotels to more modest budget and business hotels.

Barry Island

Barry was once a small village, but grew significantly after the 1880s when the Barry Docks were built, which by 1913 had become the biggest coal port in the world. Barry Island had been an island prior to the 1880s, when it was joined to the mainland as the town of Barry expanded and the docks were built, filling in the gap that separated the island from the mainland. The town also absorbed the neighbouring village of Cadoxton.

The land occupied by Barry has been settled by humans since at least the Middle Stone Age, with Mesolithic flint tools discovered on Barry Island and close to Wenvoe, and Neolithic stone axe-heads found in St Andrews Major. Bronze Age burial mounds have been found at Friars Point and Cold Knap, while an Iron Age hillfort was discovered at the Bulwarks at Porthkerry. A ruined Norman castle, Barry Castle, is built on the site of a former Roman homestead.

Pleasure Park

Barry Island Pleasure Park is an amusement park on the coast of Barry Island that was first opened in 1897. A rail link to Barry Island was opened in 1896, after which the number of visitors to the island greatly increased. Prior to 1897 there were only a few carousels, a set of swing-boats and a playground slide on the island, but in that year a switchback railway was installed at the site. Since then the fortunes of the park have fluctuated; there were over 30 rides and attractions in the park’s heyday, now reduced to 15.
