Swansea Tours with Great British Trips
Birthplace of famous poet Dylan Thomas, Swansea, together with the Victorian seaside neighbour Mumbles make up an extremely vibrant region which also boasts the beautiful Gower Peninsula, Britain's first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are 25 golden beaches on the peninsular some with stunning vistas, while others are tucked away in secluded coves amongst the Gower's fascinating limestone cliffs. The peninsula also has a number of mysterious monuments including Arthur's Stone and Giant's Grave, engraved stones from the Dark Age. Swansea itself boasts award-winning parks and gardens, fantastic shopping and world class cultural and sporting facilities. The small village of Mumbles contains a number of great little independent shops and boutiques as well as some of the area's best dining choices.
