Size isn’t everything but here in Bridgend we’ve got some of the BIGGEST attractions around – from sand dunes to trampoline parks. But don’t just take our word for it, come and have BIG old holiday in Bridgend for yourself!
Merthyr Mawr sand dunes – some of the BIGGEST dunes in Europe and some say they had a starring role in the Oscar-winning film Lawrence of Arabia. The landscape is well suited to family adventures and children will love sledding down the ‘Big Dipper’. The new Porthcawl Bike Hire are also offering some seriously BIG fatbike tours out along the dunes for a completely different experience.
The BIG Darren Fawr (fawr literally translates as ‘big’) mountain biking trails that are great for experienced riders looking for a real challenge. Tackle them separately or join them together for one seriously big ride.
And if the heavens open? Bridgend is also now home to the BIGGEST trampoline park in Wales – Jump Jam. The former Remploy factory has been completely transformed with wall-to-wall trampoline arenas, dodgeball courts, a half-pipe trampoline runway, and even a four-lane climbing wall. This is a great way to keep fit and have more than a little fun at the same time.
And there’s a seriously BIG indoor playground at Wiggley’s Fun Farm – 4 lane wavy slide, tube slide, rope bridges, crawl tower, toddlers play and a babies barnyard.
And don’t forget, in less than two weeks, the UK’s BIGGEST gathering of Elvis enthusiasts will be getting all shook up for the Porthcawl Elvis Festival 2016. The weekend of 23-25 September will see thousands dress up like The King and enjoy the featured events – the Official Shows taking place in the magnificent Grand Pavilion. These include The Elvies, the World’s leading award Show for Elvis Tribute Artists. Over twenty venues in and around the town form the official Fringe Festival.
