Birthplace of Dylan Thomas, Swansea is Wales' second largest city after Cardiff, and is within walking distance of the five-mile sweep of Swansea Bay and the famous Mumbles. Approximately 40 miles west of Cardiff in South Wales it is accessible by both road, M4, and rail from London Paddington
Swansea is 3 destinations in one. You have the fantastic coastline the Gower Peninsula to explore and play, the first place in the Uk to be designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. You also have the majestic Brecon Beacons National Park to the north both combined with the stimulating city break destination of the City of Swansea, Wales' second city.
The city boasts an award winning Marina and Maritime Quarter, which is home to the National Waterfront Museum and the LC leisure complex & waterpark, both must-see attractions located on the edge of the City centre.
In the city centre, you'll find the largest indoor market in Wales, where you can sample and buy many of our local delicacies such as cockles and laverbread, and of course our traditional welshcakes. Locally caught fresh fish can also be bought along with local souvenirs including Welsh dolls, rugby shirts and lovespoons
An iconic Sail Bridge links the Maritime Quarter with the new SA1 Swansea Waterfront, an exciting new development of modern office blocks, apartments, hotels, brasseries and an extension.
Swansea is famed for its lively and cosmoplitan nightlife having a vibrant student population.
Less than 15 minutes from the City, the Gower Peninsula is home to around 50 unspoilt beaches, coves and bays, from the jaw-dropping vastness of Rhossili, to the tiny, secluded Pwll Du. Inland you'll find sheltered woodland and rolling grasslands; country pubs and fine food. The diversity of Gower makes it an ideal location, whether you're looking for an action packed weekend, a quiet romantic day out, or a week-long family holiday.
