Swansea is a combination of vibrant city, attractive coastline and beautiful countryside.
Swansea, Wales' city by the sea, has Viking roots and a long, eventful history. Home to innovative attractions and renowned for its awesome nightlife, it's a vibrant cultural centre, and a regional shopping hub.
Back in the city centre, you'll find the largest indoor market in Wales, where you can sample and buy many of our local delicacies such as cockles and laverbread, and of course our traditional welshcakes. Locally caught fresh fish can also be bought along with local souvenirs including Welsh dolls, rugby shirts and lovespoons.
Just a stone's throw away, the charismatic seaside village of Mumbles offers galleries and boutiques, snug cafes and fine dining.
Mumbles is a haven for style-conscious shoppers, art-lovers and foodies, hosting a wide range of independent shops, cozy cafés, great restaurants, and galleries showcasing local arts and crafts.
