Swansea – Premier City
A City Centre fringed by five miles of golden sands. All the way from Mumbles Lighthouse in the west, along the Prom to the Marina and its stylish sister, the SA1 Waterfront. Easy to get around on foot, you can sightsee, shop and build sandcastles without getting in your car.
Despite the name, Mumbles is something to shout about; colourful fishermen’s cottages, yachts bobbing in the Bay, dining out on fresh local produce, eclectic shopping and four Welsh Italian ice cream parlours. It’s one of those special little places that you visit and return to again and again.
Not to be missed …
