Wales’ second city is set along a wide curving bay


Large, sprawling and boisterous, Swansea is far more Welsh than Cardiff and it is not unusual to hear the Welsh language spoken on the streets here. The Welsh atmosphere is noticeable in the food market where Welsh delicacies are in abundance and laver bread and cockles are there to tempt you!

The Welsh name for the city, Abertawe, refers to the settlement at the mouth of the River Tawe. The English name is believed to derive from Viking sources.

As early as the 14th century, ship –building and coal mining were important industries in the Swansea area and, by 1700, it was the largest port in Wales.

The award-winning Maritime Quarter redevelopment has transformed the old docklands and is well worth a visit. Arguably the most impressive part of the town, it is alive with cafes, bars and places to eat.

Nearby, located in a former warehouse, is the Swansea Maritime and Industrial Museum where the town’s industrial heritage can be explored.

Swansea is also home to the oldest museum in Wales. Founded in 1835, Swansea Museum contains many displays including Egyptian Mummies. There are also displays of archaeological finds, local pottery and porcelain.

The life and work of Dylan Thomas, Swansea’s most famous son, can be explored in the Dylan Thomas Centre. Opened on St David’s Day in 1995, it houses a theatre space, two galleries, bookshop and café. The permanent exhibition includes original drafts of his poems and letters as well as other memorabilia. The Dylan Thomas bookshop, filled to the brim with his material is located on Wind Street.

As a major Welsh town, the city is well placed for nightlife.
