After visiting Cardiff bay we drove around to Penarth and parked on a large car park just at the end of the Barrage. Unfortunately by this time the weather had decided to get worse and unlike the rain showers we had been having all day the heavens now opened with a great down pour, so a quick walk around the Barrage and watch a boat coming through a lock was about all we could do. On a sunny day the views of the bay would be great and it would be a nice walk from the bay to the barrage and back or visa versa.

The Barrage is an award winning civil engineering project and created the freshwater Bay as it is today.
The construction of the Barrage and the re-development of the docks area with many water and land based events, Bars Restaurants and visitor attractions have moved or been specially built around Cardiff bay making it such a great place to visit.

The public are welcome onto the Barrage from 7am - 10pm.
You can pick up leaflets telling you all about the Barrage from various points.
