Penarth has been a popular destination for holiday makers and day trippers for over a century.
Its Victorian and Edwardian founders created a resort of great elegance and beauty and their legacy is an attractive, bustling town of charm and character. With its superb parks and ornate seafront gardens, Esplanade and Pier, Penarth is justifiably known as the Garden By The Sea.
There is something for everyone to enjoy here – relaxing on the pier or promenade – From Penarth seafront it is only a short uphill walk back to the town centre where you will find a Victorian shopping arcade, a number of unique family-owned stores, as well as the usual popular high street names. Relax and enjoy this beautiful seaside town during your time ashore!.
