Know More about this tour

Head to Barry Island, near Cardiff, and meet your local guide -- a keen Gavin and Stacey fan! The hugely popular series documents the relationship between Gavin and Stacey – likeable characters from very different areas of Britain. While Gav hails from Essex in England, bubbly Stacey is as Welsh as they come, and the comedy centers on the cultural differences between them, their families and friends.
Hop aboard Dave’s Coach – the vehicle that was driven by Dave throughout the series – and then start seeing filming locations while riding around town. Stop at the best sites to stretch your legs, take photos and see the locations up close.
As you travel your guide will entertain you with trivia about the hit TV series and behind-the-scenes stories about the cast. Learn about James Corden who played Smithy (Gav’s best mate) and hear how he co-wrote the series with Ruth Jones – the actress who brought the no-nonsense character of Nessa to life.
Pay a visit to Barrie’s amusement arcade to see where Nessa once worked and take a seat in her chair where she gossiped for many an hour about Stacey’s relationship woes. Pose for photos in front of Stacey’s terraced house, and hear all about Uncle Bryn who frequently popped over for a 'crackin' omelet cooked by Stacey’s mum.
Head to Barry Island seafront in the center of town and finish your tour with a stroll along the promenade. Before leaving you can hop into the driver’s seat of Dave’s Coach to pose for a picture, if you wish!

  • Great Day, this was a birthday surprise for my boyfriend and he loved it. It was great to go on Dave's Coach really added to feel of the day. Our guide was amazing she knew everything and kept us all entertained for the whole day. The best part was being able to go into Stacey's house, what a lovely lady letting us into her home especially with her not feeling well when we arrived. Love my Suger Tits fridge magnet from Nessies slots... Thank you x

  • Absolutely brilliant our tour guide was fabulous really made the tour. My husband hasn't really watched Gavin and Stacey but he loved it too. Very excited when we found out we could go into Stacey's house - brilliant - would definitely recommend this tour

  • It was Brilliant, Carrie from Barry was very funny and knowledgeable. I would do this tour again :

  • We loved Sally the tour guide she made the day we enjoyed the atmosphere on the bus and all the places we visited especially Stacey's house. Bev was very kind in letting us into her home. We would highly recommend this tour to any Gavin and Stacey fan

  • Die hard G and S fans will love this for the simple fact the tour is via the original Dave's Coach, and you get to go inside Stacy and Gwen's house. Those two things are really the only reasons to take this tour. It's needlessly long, 3 hours! with 30 minutes spent inside a pub that has absolutely nothing to do with the show. It is swelteringly hot and stuffy on the coach, that is not air conditioned in spite of it stating clearly on the tour info that it is. Two open windows do not count. The tour started late so the end was rushed and incomplete. We were assured everyone would get a chance to have pics taken in the driver's seat of the coach, but there wasn't time. If you have any mobility issues, you may not be able to board the bus, as the stairs on are steep. This was not a professionally done tour, but both the driver and guide were very friendly. In short, if you know G and S well enough to quote lines from the show, you will be thrilled just to ride in the coach and go in Stacy's house. Otherwise, save your time and money.

  • Totally awesome, from the moment we stepped onto Dave's Coaches and heard the music from the show, everything about this tour was great, fantastic value for money and gave us a good insight into the filming, Wales and everything, could not fault the whole tour, would definately do it all over again next time I am back in the UK

    Thanks for a great day out team xxx
