Camping in Penarth

Penarth is a town and seaside resort in the Vale of Glamorgan, and lies on the north shore of the Severn Estuary at the southern end of Cardiff Bay. Penarth is the second largest town in the Vale of Glamorgan, next only to the administrative centre of Barry.

Today the town and its traditional seafront continues to be a regular summer holiday destination for predominantly older visitors.

Although the number of holiday visitors has greatly declined, the town retains a substantial retired population, representing over 25% of residents, but Penarth is now predominantly a dormitory town for Cardiff commuters.

The town retains extensive surviving Victorian and Edwardian architecture in many traditional parts of the town, and house prices are usually significantly higher than similar properties in nearby Cardiff.
