Welcome to Swansea

With stunning countryside, coast, city and everything in between, Swansea is the perfect holiday spot with plenty to see and do in the area.

The city itself is home to plenty of museums, gardens and open spaces, meaning that even if you want to stay within the city, there's plenty to keep your itinerary filled up, but if you want to head out to the surrounding area, you'll find activities in the neighbouring villages, as well as on the seafront.
