Barry Island, the home to many Gavin and Stacey scenes, isn’t just lovely golden beaches. For those who are looking to experience some of the best independent stores, creative minds, and delicious food and drink that the UK has to offer (or just want a little retail therapy), look no further than Good sheds Barry, the first ‘Urban high street’ in the UK.
Where can I go shopping in Wales?
Goodsheds has everything you could want from a retail experience. The Shipyard is home to a range of spectacular food and drinks venues, whether you want takeout or a dine-in – from sweet to savoury, near and far, there’s something for all tastes: get a taste of Japan at Tokyo Nights with their special Yakitori skewers or rice bowls, enjoy authentic Indian street food at Tukka Tuk and cap it off with some tasty, locally produced desert at Grumpys Gelato. If you want something on the go, get your favourite coffee at the Junction Drive Thru.
To compliment your delicious food, explore their range of independent retailers in one of the most unique settings in the UK, with stores sitting on repurposed train carriages and rail tracks. Music lovers are in for a treat at Labyrinth records with a fantastic choice of carefully selected vinyl, get something new for your wardrobe at Zac and Bella with high-quality, ethically sourced clothes, or pick up some jewellery for that someone special at the family-run Crafted Arts. Goodsheds is a great trip-out for a bit more of a relaxed day in South Wales.
