Had a lovely few hours at High Street with a friend, had lunch in one of the lovely cafes and did a little shopping, lovely personal service as the shops are all independent traders, so you get that extra quality service.

High Street Barry is a small street of independent traders. Boutiques,home/gift shops.Deli, excellent butcher, hardware shop and a smattering of very good coffee shops that sell superb foods. Most of all there aren't Chains. I love this place. Fabulous atmosphere especially at Christmas.

A lovely market there several times a year adds to the shopping experience. A good variety of shops and a great atmosphere in the street.Get everything from a nut and bolt to everyday food items, flowers and perfumes. Have your hair done, a massage then finish off with lunch.
