Penarth is a town within the Vale of Glamorgan in Wales, which is sited on the north shore of the Severn Estuary at the southern end of Cardiff Bay. The town is in fact located just 5.2 miles (8.4 km) south west from the city centre of the Welsh capital city of Cardiff and has long been viewed as one of the wealthiest and most affluent of the seaside resorts in the area.
The History Of Penarth’s Tourism
It was during the Victorian era that Penarth first rose to prominence as a popular tourist destination on a nationwide scale and that was thanks to a combination of the coming of the railway to the area and to the marketing of the town as ‘the garden by the sea’. This attracted tourists from all over Wales and the rest of the United Kingdom, but mostly from the Midlands of England due to the relative proximity of the resort to that region and the ease of travel provided by the newly completed rail network.
Penarth In The Modern Day
Today, Penarth has retained a good deal of popularity with tourists and day-trippers, although they do today tend to be those of an older generation, who are attracted by the nostalgia of the town’s traditional seafront. As well as still attracting a good number of visitors, Penarth has adopted a new purpose in that it is now used as a dormitory town for a large number of Cardiff workers.
It is due to the influx of residents who live in Penarth but commute for work to Cardiff, therefore, that the town has reached a population of just over 20,000 residents, making it the second largest settlement in the Vale of Glamorgan. It is this elevated population level and the extra number of accidents and injuries that it will inevitably lead to, which now makes us turn our attention to the issue of personal injury compensation claims Penarth residents.
