If you’re travelling in, to find The Market Street Club, get off at Barry station. Turn right, then left up Market Street (2 minutes walk). If you’re travelling back, the last train leaves Barry for Cardiff at 11.16pm, and the last bus goes at 11.53pm. If you’re going to the seaside first, the Market Street Club is a nice 15 minute walk away, or jump on the train from Barry Island for a 2 minute ride.
