Swansea is Wales’ Waterfront City. It sits on the sandy 5 mile stretch of Swansea Bay beach and is a great base for exploring the best of South-West Wales, UK. The City Centre is a vibrant hub with over 230 shops and a fabulous market that’s home to all sorts of local delicacies.
There are loads of places to visit including the Dylan Thomas Centre, Swansea Museum and the National Waterfront Museum to name but a few. One of Swansea’s museums is Wales’ newest and the other is Wales’ oldest – Dylan Thomas even described it as a “museum that belongs in a museum.”
Explore some of Swansea’s many parks and gardens – 5 of them (Clyne Gardens, Singleton Botanical Gardens, Victoria Park, Cwmdonkin Park and Brynmill Park) have Green Flag Awards and are great places to spend time with the family; after picking up some local goodies for a picnic at Swansea Market, of course.
