Rhossili Bay, Gower Peninsula, Wales

Raise a glass in your Swansea hotel to Dylan Thomas, whose poems shaped the city’s art scene and words can still be used to describe its uncorseted nightlife.

Historic Swansea

The world’s first railway line, from Swansea to Mumbles, was emblematic of the city’s determination to enjoy life, as it took the workers to the delights of the seaside. Although it was dismantled in 1960, you can still cycle its scenic course from the marina to Mumbles Pier. Swansea Castle had its heyday in the 13th century as the administrative centre of the Gower, but is overshadowed by the awesome Oystermouth Castle in Mumbles, former home of the de Broases, local bigwigs who ran the region.

Art and museums in Swansea

An important art lover’s pit stop, the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery has Old Masters and modernists in its ornate Italianesque galleries. Leave your Swansea hotel and learn about Wales’s most famous wordsmith at the Dylan Thomas Centre or discover the greatest Welsh innovators in the National Waterfront Museum.

Quirky things to do in Swansea

Spend a day by the sea at Mumbles, eating freshly plucked cockles and strolling the Pier. Surfers ride the breakers on the Rolls-Royce of British beaches, nearby Rhossili Bay.

Events in Swansea

There are carnivals and live music at the Swansea Bay Summer Festival throughout peak season. The Swansea Festival of Music and Arts in October welcomes local and international performers to venues across the city.
