Bridgend is one of the biggest cities in the Bridgend County Borough region of Wales. Bridgend is only 22 miles away from Cardiff, the capital of the country. There are two rivers that pass through Bridgend: River Ogmore and River Ewenny.
Ogmore Castle is located south of Bridgend, and it is surrounded by beautiful lands. The castle dates back to 1106, when the construction started. Unfortunately, Ogmore Castle fell into ruin, but it is still a major attraction of Bridgend.
Coity Castle was built in 1126, and it is a Norman castle. Like the previously mentioned one, this castle is also in ruins, but it still has glimpses of the elegance that once characterized it.
Newcastle Castle completes the series of the ruined castles in Bridgend. This property overlooks the town centre, providing its visitors with an amazing view. Even if it is barely standing, the beautiful green land surrounding it make a beautiful contrast.
Bryngarw Country Park is only a stone-thrown away from Bridgend, at it is one of the most beautiful properties in the region. With more than 30 hectares of estate, from which 18 are pure meadows and forests, this historic park is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing day with your family, in the core of the nature. Playing, picnic and barbecue areas are also available.
Adare Street is one of the areas of the town centre which shopping passionates will be thrilled with. The street is only intended for pedestrians and cyclists, so you can relax and shop freely. Other streets of the kind are Caroline Street, Market Street, Queen Street and Cheapside. The main shopping facility is, though, Rhiw Shopping Centre.
