Information - Areas of the Vale of Glamorgan - Dinas Powys

Area profile

Dinas Powys is about 5 miles south of Cardiff. It is generally regarded as a pleasant dormitory village for Cardiff's commerce and industry commuters since the city has expanded with widespread development around the Cardiff Bay area.

Despite the addition of several housing developments over the past fifty years, the old village centre of Dinas Powys still has a mostly unspoiled and almost rural feel, retaining a large village common and a traditional village centre complete with a post office and a range of small independent shops, public houses, restaurants and community facilities. In addition there are shops, garages, small supermarkets, a pharmacy and doctors' surgeries on the main Cardiff Road and a selection of shops on the Murch estate including a post office and a pharmacy.

The village has two railway stations, one at either end of the village with Eastbrook station at the Cardiff end and Dinas Powys station at the other end.
