The Vale

The Vale of Glamorgan constituency covers 17 wards, from Dinas Powys and Wenvoe in the Eastern Vale, through Wales’ largest town, Barry, to St Brides Major and Ewenny in the Western Vale.

The Vale of Glamorgan covers an area of 33,500 hectares and has a population of just over 121,000.  The area’s close proximity to the capital city of Wales makes access to the Vale easy, with regular bus and train services to the principle towns and rural areas.

Home to the most southerly point in Wales, the Vale of Glamorgan is perfect for those who love the outdoor life and discovering towns and villages packed full of traditional charm and character.

The county’s dramatic coastline, which includes part of the 14-mile Glamorgan Heritage Coast, is a mix of golden sandy beaches, spectacular rugged cliffs and breath-taking views.
