Bridgend tourist guide

22 miles to the west of Cardiff is the town of Bridgend, which has some rather interesting and quite stunning little known world-beating facts it seldom boasts about. The Bridgend County Borough has more hours of sunshine than Milan in Italy, the Welsh National Anthem first official performance was in a chapel in the town, the instigator of the American Revolution, Richard Price, was born in Bridgend County Borough, the inventor of the X-Ray, Sir William Morgan, came from Bridgend and Sir Morien Morgan, the genius behind supersonic flight and eventually Concorde was born in the town.

It's a feisty little town that has come through recessionary times. Visitors will always receive a warm welcome, and there's some fine shopping (including a designer outlet), great restaurants and pubs for all the family. It's one of those Welsh towns where there is always something going on for all the family. The Bridgend County Show, usually held over three days in Autumn, is always a family favourite with a full calendar of horse and dog events, as well as craft and trade fair. It is one of the many events organised by the special community business which stages a range of town centre events from vintage car rallies and continental markets to car boot sales and craft fairs.
