Half the fun of visiting Bridgend is the shopping. The market town has a great choice of high street favourites and independents and the McArthurGlen Bridgend centre here has over 90 designer outlets.
After all that indulgence, catch your breath in one of the nearby nature reserves. Highlights include Bryngarw Country Park with its picnic-perfect glades and formal gardens, Parc Slip Nature Reserve a wetland that’s alive with wildflowers and birdlife, and Parc Calon Lan, where bleak coal mining pits have been transformed into tranquil lakes.
In fact, outdoor adventures abound here, with the Glamorgan Heritage Coast and its remarkable cliffs, dunes and beaches just a short drive away.
For history, visit Coity Castle. Located near Bridgend’s outskirts, the ruined Norman fortress exudes atmosphere and still features many impressive features including battlements, towers and a large keep. Ideal for getting the kids’ imaginations going!
