Information
Situated on the South Wales coast in the beautiful Vale of Glamorgan, Penarth has been a magnet for holiday makers and day visitors for more than 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, beautiful seafront gardens and graceful esplanade, Penarth is justifiably known as the garden by the sea.

The town centre retains an air of Victorian style with elegant buildings bordered by tree-lined roads. Some of the finest examples of Victorian Architecture can be seen in Penarth’s churches, public and commercial buildings and in the ornate houses, once the home of the shipowners, coal magnates and master mariners.

The sweeping esplanade is the perfect place for a gentle stroll or to sit and breathe the fresh, salty air. The many vantage points provide panoramic views across the Bristol Channel to the island of Flat Holm and Steep Holm. Penarth’s famous 658 foot pier has been restored and is a regular port of call during summer months for the cruise ships Balmoral and the Waverley - the last seagoing paddle steamer in the world.

From the esplanade, an attractive coastal park leads out to Lavernock Point, an important site in the history of communication. It was from here in 1897 that Marconi sent the first Radio transmission over the water to the island of Flat Holm.

On Penarth’s doorstep is Cardiff Bay, Europe’s most exciting waterfront regeneration scheme. The Cardiff Bay Barrage, which has cost in excess of £220 million has created an inland lake as the focal point of for waterside development. It will also provide a pedestrian link and cycle link from Penarth to Cardiff with more than a million visitors a year expected to make the crossing. Alongside the Barrage and nestling in the lee of Penarth Head is Penarth Marina with attractive waterfront homes and smart yachts and cruisers.

Optimum Marine Surveys by John Heale
I recently used the services of Optimum Marine to carry out a survey of my vessel. Oli Byles carried out the survey and I found the service professional, informative and courteous. I would recommend this company. John Heale

Cardiff Marine Group by Unhappy visitors
One of the worst marina we've stayed in, facilities are terrible with just a floating toilet and shower block, security is terrible the car park for berth holders is small the main gate is never locked so anyone can wander in and they do.
They say they have Wi-Fi which is okay if you stay outside of the office complained about it and the answer was well it's okay here in the office, some of the staff have no interest in boats or boating in general some of the management are not approachable just interested in making money.
Marina Security is non existent no 24 hour guard or patrol no berth master's for visitors so if the office is closed then your on your own.
Lots of rubbish floating around the pontoons and there's quite a few dilapidated abandoned boats and some people cycling along the pontoons and there's one or two who let dog's off leads and leave mess

The Potted Pig
The Potted Pig restaurant is located in central Cardiff on High Street within 100m of both Cardiff castle and the famous Millennium Stadium.
Opened in 2011 The Potted Pig has made its home in a former bank vault underneath the city. We serve a varied and constantly changing menu of modern British food with a few French and New-York grill inspired influences. The menus are based on food we love cooking and eating rather than a single concept. At The Potted Pig we make every effort to keep our menus seasonal, which means using as many locally sourced products from independent and local suppliers as possible.
