Located just west of Swansea Bay, Gower Wales is surrounded by the Bristol Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, and has become the home of one of the most varied wildlife in the UK thanks to the diverse habitat it provides.
Gower’s landscape is also steeped with picture-postcard villages and historical sites imbued with Welsh culture – hiding between the natural beauties of the Gower Peninsula there are medieval churches (which now host a series of music events), castles and fortifications, dating back as far as the Lower Paleolithic (250,000) Era.
Woven into the series of reminiscent archaeological sites – burial tombs, ritual cairns and standing stones being just a few examples - are enthralling faery tales, ghosts and folklore which contributes to the ancient mysticism of the Gower Peninsula. The breath-taking Gower landscapes have also inspired great works such as these of ‘Swansea’s most famous son’ – the poet and author Dylan Thomas (1914-1953).
Whether you are looking to connect with nature or the past, or just relax on a picturesque beach, or perhaps be adventurous and go surfing on the awesome waves by Llangennith beach, the 19-mile coastal outcrop that is Gower has something to offer for all visitors.
