Swansea is Wales’ second largest city and is set on the five mile sweep of Swansea Bay. A city with a proud heritage and a bright future; new developments in the city centre include new hotels, attractions and a vibrant new waterfront area which extends the already popular promenade and maritime quarter.
The city centre is only a five minutes’ walk from the beach and offers shopping and a wide range of eating out and entertainment options. On the western edge of the Bay is the picturesque Victorian village of Mumbles which heralds the captivating coast and countryside of the Gower Peninsula, the first in the uk to be designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. Its succession of spectacular bays and award winning beaches are perfect for watersports and the green hills beyond are a walker’s paradise. Rhossili bay was hailed as ‘the british supermodel of beaches’ by the uk broadsheets. In addition, oxwich bay on gower was recently listed as one of the top 12 beaches in the world by ‘travel magazine’.
A wide range of attractions and activities are within easy reach of the University and hotels. These range from Wales’ newest Museum – the National Waterfront Museum, and the Dylan Thomas Centre, which celebrates the life and work of the Swansea born poet, to surfing at one of the UK’s premier surfing beaches.Swansea also benefits from a mild microclimate which encourages our parks and gardens to flourish and unique specimens and national collections can be found in our botanical gardens and green spaces.
