Why Move to Bridgend?
The county of Bridgend has stunning scenery, a thriving surf and golf scene and a host of fun festivals.
Situated very nicely midway between two cities: 18 miles from the Welsh capital of Cardiff, 20 miles from Swansea and just 7 miles from the UK’s west coast.
The area has been inhabited since before Roman times but the town’s change of fortune dates from the building of the vast Royal Ordnance Factory at Waterton immediately before the outbreak of World War II.
Post-war development included the conversion of this huge munition’s factory into an impressive industrial estate.
The highly successful Ford Motor Company’s Engine Plant and the Science Park (which houses several international hi-tech companies), mean that Bridgend boasts a well-developed manufacturing and service sector that is world renowned.
Two rivers flow through the region, the River Ogmore and the River Ewenny. In fact, the town received its name due to the River Ogmore. Bridgend means “The main bridge on the River Ogmore”. In Welsh it is “Pen y bont ar ogwr”.
More recent years have seen Bridgend expand due to some major re-development in and around the town.
Its busy centre has been pedestrianised, and the marina area updated. Improvements in local amenities and infrastructure as well as new housing have all helped to attract new people to the region.
Local beaches have been voted “The best in the UK” “3rd Best in Europe” with Rhossili Bay and Gower Peninsula Coast voted “9th Best Beach in the World”; very popular with surfers from all over the world.
Other appeals of the town are its access to some beautiful parks such as Parc Gweledig Margam country park and a little further out you have the impressive Brecon Beacons.
Travel connections are good. The main M4 runs east and west just a couple of miles from the town and on into mainland England.
Bridgend railway station offers services to some very large cities such as London and Manchester as well as many other towns, Cardiff, Bristol, Swansea, and Port Talbot.
Bridgend bus station has services to urban and rural areas in South Wales. Cardiff International Airport is located 15 miles away. For the convenience factor you need to go along way to beat Bridgend.
Bridgend Schools & Education

At least nine primary, junior schools, and infant schools serve the town, including St. Mary’s Primary Catholic School, Ysgol Gymraeg Bro Ogwr, both are well regarded.
The highly regarded Bridgend College is the town’s further education and higher education provider; it primarily offers vocational courses and GCSEs. It attracts school-leavers from as far as Swansea and Cardiff.
The college also has its own residence for students aged 16+ with learning difficulties and physical disabilities who attend the college from all over Wales.
