Barry (Welsh: Y Barri) is a town and community in the Vale of Glamorgan in Wales. Located along the northern coast of the Bristol Channel less than 7 miles (11 km) south-southwest of Cardiff, the capital city of Wales, Barry is a seaside resort, with attractions including several beaches and the Barry Island Pleasure Park. Once a small village, Barry has absorbed its larger neighbouring villages of Cadoxton and Barry Island.
The meaning of the place name is derived from the Welsh 'barr' meaning 'hill'.
The current population of Barry is 47,863, and the town is ranked as the seventh largest locality in Wales.
