Swansea and Gower Peninsula

Swansea, Wales’ second largest city, hugs the vast crescent of Swansea Bay, giving a chilled-out seaside vibe to the city by day and one of good-natured indulgence by night.

Modern Swansea
The birth place of the poet Dylan Thomas has changed a lot since Dylan lived there. The recent SA1 area is a good place to start, a smart waterfront development, crowned with Wales’ tallest building.  Also visit the Maritime Quarter home of the Dylan Thomas Centre and The National Waterfront Museum.
Gower Peninsula
Then head west through the village of mumbles to The Gower Peninsula, the first place in Britain to be designated and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1956. It’s got some truly wonderful beaches including Three Cliffs Bay and Rhossili, so impressive they keep popping up in ‘Top Ten’ lists. Take a stroll to Worm’s Head on the eastern tip or just enjoy the scenery over a cool drink – the view from the Worm’s Head Hotel is second to none.
