Bridgend is a community in Wales's Bridgend County Borough, 20 miles west of Cardiff, the capital, and 20 miles east of Swansea. The Ogmore River is the river crossing by the initial bridge which gave Bridgend its name, however the Ewenny River further crosses to the town. Bridgend as a whole was established at a ford on the Ogmore River and was so incredibly significant that the Normans constructed two castles here on either side of the river, protecting the access to three valleys, and a third, Coity Castle, was built about a mile north-east of the city at the end of the 12th century.

Located halfway between Cardiff and Swansea, Bridgend was initially a fording location on the Ogmore canal. Bridgend is also recognised as home to a vibrant "indie" music scene and for its fashion outlet centre. The nearby countryside of Bridgends is very popular with outdoor enthusiasts. Parc Slide is a 305 acre reserve on an abandoned open cast mining site, which is another community attraction. The woods, wetlands and meadows, maintained by the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales, were developed for the advantage of wildlife and to incentivise ecotourism. It is home to a variety of uncommon species, including large crested newts, brown hares, lapwings, bullfinches as well as linnets. However, try looking out for the odd adder and you may be in for a surprise.

Why not visit the Royal Mint? Taking the children to The Royal Mint Experience, which is one of the most intriguing attractions in the UK, you can watch the coins being produced. During your trip, the sparkling silver and gold coins you see being made will enter circulation and can end up in your wallet by next week.
