Penarth

Penarth has been called the garden by the sea,owing to the floral displays along the esplanade, and is one of the last resorts in South Wales which still has a Victorian pier, where you will find toilets, and refreshments.

Built in 1894 the famous 658ft long pier has been restored and refurbished, and is a regular port of call during the summer months for the cruise ship Balmoral, and also the Waverley,  the last sea going paddle steamer in the world.Car parking on the seafront is not too good especially on weekends. Fishing off Penarth Pier is very popular.
